Weird predator 212 idle

I have a minibike with a predator 212 that I bought around 3 years ago now. I've never had any issues until a few days ago when I turned the choke off it was a lot higher of an idle and started to roll. I then turned the idle screw down but even a 1/8 turn was enough that it could no longer idle. I turned the idle back and rode with the high idle but it would not engine brake when I was off of the throttle but when ever I blip the throttle it kills the rpm and almost dies so I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions? (Sorry for the essay)

Sounds like a stuck float to me.

Pop the idle jet out . Clean it.
Use the magnifiying glass / search function .

Update:I cleaned the carb and checked the gaskets and everything looked up to spec but I am still having the same problem. If it helps it only dies out when the choke is off, it seems like it wants to run away but dies a few seconds after.

You cleaned the little hole in the bottom of the jet not the big horizontal hole .
