Default 04 C50 Carb Issues

Have an 04 C50 that sat for 3 months while I was moving. When I went to move the bike, it stared right up and runs with the choke all the way out. when I go to put the choke in or give it any gas it wants to die. Put good gas W/ carb cleaner in tank and slowly sprayed carb cleaner in the air intake for about 30 minutes with no affect. Suggestions before I pull the carb to start checking floats and jets?

I'm guessing you parked it with ethonal gas in the tank. Drain the tank. Remove the carb and have it cleaned. Run gas thru all lines. Everything must be fresh. Gas treatments WILL NOT remove ethonal sludge.
