On my other x7 bike i have to use starter fluid to get it started. once its started... it runs fine. i have a choke but it doesnt work with just the choke on. Any suggestions on what the problem may be?

Maybe your low jet is set to lean.

What does that mean? and what do i do about it/check?
How about your idle screw?? Is he hole in the carb piston open enough to feed the engine. It helps to crack the throttle a hair when you start it.
can you explain how i would see if it is? i'm not too "mechanic smart". this is my first project i've done with mechanics. sorry :(

EDIT: Nevermind! i just loosened the idle screw and it starts fine now!
Good Job, once you get the basics down, it will be easy.
