TXR500FA been sitting up and having problems

I've been having a couple of problems with my 01 Foreman/Rubicon 500. First the battery keeps running dead. Its a new battery so i figure its grounding out somewhere, but if there are other possibilities i'd love to hear them.

That's not my biggest problem. This is it. The bike will start and idle as long as its full choke. If I cut the choke it idles rough and low and will cut off. I've run seafoam through it and it has helped a little but not solved the problem. When I try to give it gas it cuts off. I don't know if its flooding it or what. I'm a novice at fourwheelers so I'd love some input. Thanks

Open the drain on the bottom of the carb bowl. Is there gas?
the fuel was on. I feel stupid, I just needed to put it on Res. because there was less than I thought.
Ahh dont feel stupid.. The simple problems get everybody from time to time.
Just look at Jbacon..:D
