Default Bike Dies When Reved (FIXED WooHoo!!!)

Sorry this isn't a volusia or even a suzuki for that matter but i was hopeing someone here might be able to help me out.
Here's my problem. I pulled apart my wife's 06 virago 250 today to clean the carb. I have been having a problem where i had to run it on 1/2 choke all the time otherwise it would just die under a load. . During the cleaning i pulled both covers off of the carb along with the jets. Now that it is back together it won't rev. I can let it sit and idle forever but the second i try to give it some gas it dies. Now if i feather the throttle i can get it to rev a bit but if i just gun it it dies. I also noticed that it seems to be running really rich.
PLEASE HELP!!!

i had this problem on a car one time, and maybe it's something to check for...

it ended up being an old vacuum line that had lost enough of it's rigidity that when the revs went up too fast, the vaccum inside the tube would suck it completely closed, cutting off all the air (or was it fuel? **** it sucks getting old!).

anyways, if any of the lines are old enough that the rubber is flexing too much, might cause this. i know nothing about a virago, though.

It also could be the float in the carb not being properly adjusted so that it doesn't allow enough fuel to flow through the bowl.

Check the assembly of your air cleaner as well.
I know the Volusia has a rubber piece in the football that can be installed backwards by accident ( If you have the K & N... ), not allowing much air to be taken in if the engine is revved.
Don't ask me HOW I know this......

Gonna be the weekend i fear before i can finish it now. I took it to a local guy here to have him clean it completely out. He said that i might have missed something but i am very skeptical. I will let you all know how it goes.

ok just got the carb back from a full break down and clean at my local bike shop. Placed it on my bike and it is doing the same thing. Seems like fuel starvation to me. When i placed my hand over the breather hole it will let me rev it like normal but when i let it off it returns back to the same thing it was doing before.

plug that puppy!

are you talking about you're covering the main air intake? If not, is it possible while it was apart that you lost some type of stopper of plug for the hole you're covering?
