If its not smoking then its probably starving for fuel clean the jets and check the fuel line and the filter on the line...you might want to check you spark plug also.

If its not idling, check float height, check pilot jet for being blocked, check the adjustable screw on left side of carb., how many turns out, from all the way spun in, is it at? Of course, make sure your fuel is fresh, gas tank doesnt have crap floating around ( add a fuel filter into your fuel line).one of these things should be what's preventing your bike from idling.- also make sure the valves have clearance to the can , if no clearance , they could be held open a bit, bad situation.good luck.

A engine needs air, fuel, spark, and compression, grab your handy dandy shop manual, and check it out. Remember grasshopper you can do it!
