Question Starts now but dies with throttle

07 Blast 492cc. Accidentily started bike with the fuel cut off. It ran a bit and died. Since then couldnt get it to start. Now I charged battery, added fuel, sprayed strating fluid in intake and it starts and idles forever. But if you give it throttle it dies. We just bought bike and learning things the hard way now. Trying to figure out spark plug access to check that. You can see the boot and top of plug, but not sure if you have to remove gas tank or? if so, how to remove tank? I guess also will try to drain all fuel and start with fresh fuel?

A fresh tank of fuel would help, however, when I start to have running problems I generally take apart and clean the carburetor.
