1985 Yamaha Dirtbike wants to shut off when I give it throttle?

My 1985 Yamaha Dirtbike was working fine last night until I woke up and tried to start it! It started up just fine and sounded normal, BUT asoon as i tried giving it gas/More throttle it wants to shut off so I figured I'd let it warm up for 5 minutes I did that and it still does the same thing! I'm thinking the tube or carberator could be jammed with dirt? What do you think the issue could be???

    Change the spark plugs and gradually let off the choke as the engine warms up to prevent spark plug fouling again. When you park, turn the gas off.

    Rebuild the carburetor with a rebuild kit and a manual and carb cleaner.

    start with a new spark plug of the correct gap.
