Hasnt run in a few years the battery was dead and I jumped it to get it to start after it started it pops and dies without choke. I assume its battery and I did replace plugs but the old ones looked good. What are the thoughts on this ?
I am new here so thank you for a respone.

The bike will not run without a relatively strong battery, so if it doesn't charge up right away, it will die when you remove the jump battery. Not running without choke could also be junk in the idle circuit, likely the part controlled by the pilot jet screw, as the 'choke' is actually a valve that bypasses the idle circuit with the same source of fuel/air mixture.

Also, is it the old fuel or did you drain the old and replace it with fresh new fuel?
