CRF would only run with choke full open

Title says it but I pulled and cleaned the carb three times, fresh gas, new plug, etc. I think the final conclusion was empty the gas tank (incl. reserve) and pull the pepcock and blow air backwards through the built-in filter. Choke all off and cranks and runs like it's supposed to. Would not run one click down or more off full.

Looked up several searches regarding this problem and saw someone put in an external fuel filter but not many people had answers, but in case it happens on yours, try it first and maybe save a couple of hours.

Just making sure, did you solve this for yourself then? I know you want to be a little careful blowing through the tank filter with too much pressure as you might tear it...but sounds like you did whatever it needed.
