'75 GT80 was created by Sweetsixteam

Hi there, my landlord has an old gt80 that i've been tinkering with and trying to get running.  Seems to have good spark, I could get it to run with a spray of brake clean near the carb.  Just for a couple seconds kind of thing.

So I got a carb rebuild kit, and swapped everything except the choke plunger that didn't quite fit.  Carb bowl fills but still won't run off the carb.

Does it need a battery to run?  Hopefully I'm posting in the right area.  Bike is in relatively nice shape.

There are people on here way way more experienced than me. But if you are sure its a carb issue, have you checked that the choke pickup is not blocked. If you blow through it you can hear it open when its clear. The hole in it is teeny teeny tiny, I used a wire about the width of a hair to get mine cleared.
