SOURCE: yamaha xv535 wont idle off choke
****, squeeze, bang, blow... check filter, fuel and spark... its going to be prob a fuel problem. if the bike hasnt been running all winter run some gumout through it... and get rid of the fuel thats been sitting in the tank. more info would help but it sounds like you got varnish in your carb....

You do have fuel in the tank? Pull fuel line from carburetor--turn fuel tap ON--fuel should run from line (into clean can or bottle). If none, the brass screen inside the tap body may be plugged. Remove screen and hold with pliers. Clean with carburetor cleaner from auto parts store. When you set choke, can you see anything happening? May have water in bottom of float bowl. Remove bowl to check (and clean).
