Just letting everyone know that I did the scar mod today and it is like a whole new bike! Fixed all of the issues I was having. Throttle response is amazing and absolutely no more dead spots. Thank you all for your help!

Choke aka cold start enrichment works great when pulled out all the way.
A poor transition at closing with no fast idle = engine dies.

I am an amateur at best but there is conflicting evidence out there on choke. Some say choke is to be used for cold starts and some say a properly tuned bike shouldn't need choke at all.

Thanks for the advice! I keep forgetting to check those hoses. Hopefully I'll get to check that out this week unless work has got me busy.

The choke is specifically meant to be used for cold starts because the fuel/air ratio needed with cold fuel and cold engine is different than after the engine warms a bit.

Whoever is telling you that a choke is not needed "if tuned right" is wrong. It has nothing to do with that.
