Yamaha Breeze won't start

I have a '93 Breeze that sat for a couple years without use. I have taken the carb apart twice now and thoroughly cleaned everything. I reset the pilot jet to the original setting (about 3 turns out).
The ATV still will not start. It will fire with starting fluid and I can actually keep it running by playing with the throttle. The machine warmed up and I rode it for 10-15 minutes. Thought I solved the problem but the next morning it wouldn't start. Same process, got it running on starting fluid. Engine started to warm up and ran pretty well. Rode it for 10-15 minutes again. Next day, won't start. What am I missing??
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

It probably needs the valve lash adjusted. I'm not sure what the setting is for a Yamaha Breeze but you should be able to search and find the correct setting.

Sounds more like a lack of choke on cold start.

sounds like your valves need adjusted or are bent.
when it runs does it run ok, is there any black smoke when running like choke is stuck ??
