05 CRF problem... Where to start

Hi Guys, thanks for you help in advance with this!

Yesterday I was out free riding with some buddies out in the desert of Utah. My bike was running great. I went to drag race my bro on the salt flats. When I hit 3rd it sputtered and died.

Now I can start it and it idles, but when I try and give it any gas in neutral or in gear it immediately dies.

I pull the choke out and the idle goes up, but when I try and twist the throttle the bike dies.

Not sure where to start looking for my problem. I am thinking the carb.

Any ideas?

Check the clip on the needle. If the clip breaks, the needle will fall & plug the main jet.
