01 FE501 starting issues again!

Ok the starting isues are back! Dead cold the bike sitting for two weeks I turn on the choke two primer kicks with the decomp in then find TDC. I give her a good kick and she starts idles for about 20 seconds and then dies. After she quits it is almost impossible for her to start again. I did manage to get it to idle for a min or so with the choke on and gave the throttle a few twists but with the choke off if she is idiling if I even touch the throttle she dies. I have a #45 start jet in now would a #40 solve all this issue? Timing? I have no hair left!!!!! I did get some blowby oil from an overly full crankcase make its way through the carb Do I have to clean the thing out again? When will this nightmare end!

As a side note I took off the stator cover and there was condensation inside after a wash from a couple of weeks ago i took care of that but now my gasket is cut can I silicone the cover in place of the gasket?

I am going to guess that after 20 or 30 seconds you will need to remove the choke (as soon as it starts 8 stroking). Keep it running with the throttle.
