Xr 80 running problems.

I have a 2005 xr 80 for a pit bike and the previous owner didn't take care of it, it ran good but the idle was rough and turning the screws only did so much. So i went through and cleaned it filter and carb. I stripped the carb down and sprayed/blew out the jet and every other passage in the carb, put it back together and now the bike won't run at all. (This wasn't my first tear down either, i do most of the work on my big bikes and they run fine)

It's starts (barely) does not idle at all and when i manage to ride it, it runs horrible like its choking/running out of gas?? I adjusted the fuel/air screw and choke they did nothing, I've never had a bike run worse after cleaning it. Any thoughts?

Pilot jet or a passage is still clogged. Clean it again. check that every passage is clear with some carb cleaner.
