Choke? Sure you have it in the fully open position when the bike is warmed. If not, it will run for 1-2 minutes tops then out.

if it sat all night it's probably not flooded anymore. leave the gas alone. lift the choke to the on position and kick it a few times. If it fires, reach down and turn the choke off and kick it again giving it a little fuel(NOT MUCH)!!! if this fails, ground the spark plug and check for a spark. Change the plug. You said it ran when you bought it. . .did you ride it or just let it idle?

i just changed the spark plug and it still doesnt want to start. i rode it wen i went to check out the bike and then wen i brought it home i rode it again and then it ran out of gas..so wen i went to put more gas in, it wouldnt start.
