Sounds like the carb tuning is off to me but I'll let an expert answer this question.

it starts with the choke off than when i open it doesnt idle it shuts off .
Stop using the choke, they are BS anyway, On a big block v8 I get it, but a single cylinder 2-stroke, nope, not for me!

If it starts, hop on it and RIDE!

Keep an eye on the color of the Spark plug tip (Plug Chop) to make sure the fuel/oil mixture is good to go.

Hi,
Starting order:
Prime the carb
Put the choke on
Pull the brake lever and hold
Turn the key switch on
Push starter button while giving it 1/4 throttle for max 15 seconds, repeat until it starts or use the pull start
Allow it to idle for a minute or two
Put the choke in the off position
Go riding

If its not working at any point in this order let us know where and what its doing, it will be easier to diagnose the issue.
