Exclamation Engine Trouble Because Choke Left On Too Long

Hello, yesterday as i was riding home on my s40, i forgot i left my choke on and the engine started sputtering then shut off. I let it sit a minute and went another half mile down the road and it happened again. Now it wont even run when i start it up, any ideas on what the issue is and if its easily resolved?
Thanks!

Leaving the choke on too long can fowl the spark plugs. It will leave a carbon build up. I would check the plug.

You were right, sucks getting to it having to take off he seat, drain the tank, remove it, disconnect hoses, ect... But better then what I was going to do, for some reason I thought I gummed up the carbs but I'm glad it was just a simple spark plug swap, I got one of the green and white E series batteries and was told it will give a smoother ride with more horsepower and better gas mileage? Any input?

Did it start up alright after changing the plug?
Definitely, it can be a pain to access some of the areas.
I am unfamiliar with the battery and said benefits.

Started up great and I didn't mean to say battery, meant to say spark plug

Glad to hear it.
I have seen those plugs online but no experience.
