KLX450 idles but dies immediately on throttle

2013 KLX450 (only 300kms old) - Idles but dies immediately on throttle (as soon as you touch throttle it dies).
Bike been sitting for a couple of months (was perfectly fine before storage). Have cleaned carb couple of times etc, all good. Electrics all ok. Driving me nuts - Any ideas?

Have you drained the old gas? May have gone bad.
I bought a 15 KX100 and a 15 KX450, and had to have the 100 worked on before my son even rode it because it wouldn't even run at idle.
My 450 is a BEAST though

Any twelve people who can't get themselves out of jury duty are not my peers.

KLX 450 - problem with throttle at idle

Thanks for message.
Yes, drained/replaced fuel and still no good.
Been to shop and even they are struggling!

Yeah, they do go real well! If only I could get it running properly...... Cheers
