stupid FAQ - bike won't run, acts like no air

I parked my street sv650s about a month ago, after using it to help 
friends learn how to ride.  (I was still on crutches and not using it)

Yesterday morning I found the battery drained.  I recharged the battery 
overnight and it's fine now.

This morning the battery is fine, but the bike won't run.  It will only 
start with choke full on.  It acts like it's not getting air.  Taking 
off the choke or rolling off the throttle instantly kills it.

I know this is FAQ, but it's none of the things I've found in the 
archives.  Gas is only a month old, air isn't blocked... the bike is 
exactly as it was last month.

Someone clueby4 me and I'll buy you a beer or two...
