Full choke, let it idle for a few minutes, then ease off the choke when driving? I noticed on full or even half choke even after a few minutes I get a few "misses" until the motor is warmed up and I can drop the off choke off completely.
Can't speak for the 450, but the 250's vary. I had a couple that needed no choke in warm weather, but the current ride needs some year 'round. It won't start on anything more than 1/2 or less than 1/3 any time of year, and it has to be set before cranking. Any movement of the lever while it's idling will also kill it. Ease off the choke as the engine warms.
Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!
It looks like one that I have seen on this sight in the past. Along time ago.
I have been around sense 2009 so if I am not having a brain fart going it looks real familiar.
Have fun, I have rebuilt a few of the bikes. I take them all apart and rebuild them and put them back together again.
Keep the rubber side down and the shiny side up

Any ideas what options I have for a removable passenger seat? I know there are those small ones with sucker pads, but my rear fender has been bobbed very short. I have have my rear pegs, but no rear seat!
