I'm trying to locate a replacement spark arrestor for it. It's horribly loud without it and it irks me that someone removed it... they are simple to clean if they get plugged and there is nothing to be gained by removing it other than ringing ears.

You're gonna laugh and it's probably remote but, make sure dirt daubers haven't plugged up any vents.
A buddy had that happen on a vent and I had them plug up a weed whacker exhaust.
Hey, strange but true

The fuel cap vent may be clogged.

Both of the above are very good suggestions if the bike set for a while.

Good suggestions on the vents, not sure there's much to be gained there though. I don't believe this bike has a crank case vent, and if it does I haven't seen it yet. Carb vents are not plugged. Fuel cap vent hose was replaced with one of those little anodized one way vents.

Update, without using the choke and with just a dab of throttle I was able to get the bike to start last night. It idled perfectly, though a bit smokey, and would rev up with a blip of the throttle. I let it idle for a few minutes and blipped the throttle several times with no issues, adjusted idle speed and everything seemed great. Curiosity got the best of me and I tried full throttle, which made the bike stumble and die again. It would not clean out after holding the throttle open for a few minutes at near full throttle, if I let off the throttle it would just die.
I adjusted the oil pump per the manual, let it sit for about an hour and repeated the above sequence of events with the same results. Even after the oil pump adjustment it was pretty smokey at idle, I'm wondering if the oil pump has failed... I'm out of any other ideas.

I find oil pumps to be very unreliable especially after a long time...

They work all the time on snowmobiles, I don't see why a bike should be any different but it does seem that they are problematic on bikes. Hoping I can keep the oil pump on this one though, not having to mix gas for the little bikes is helpful.

No I was suggesting you post so the guys here can actually see and hear how it's running.
I just thought it would provide something words maybe cannot.

Btw-I think 78SuzyQ on TT has the answer, I was gonna suggest running a wire through the Jets and passageways.
Followed by carb cleaner spray. It's always worked for me.
I use Berrymans and an ultrasonic cleaner but the wire works every time.
