You have a plugged pilot jet. These bikes are famous for carb set up issues. Comes from having such a large carb on small displacement engine (32mm Kehien FCR )

if you do have a go yourself take pictures each time you undo everything so you have some reference for re assembly also make sure the air box is spotless

Pour a whole can of petrol fuel system cleaner into the tank with about 2 litres of clean petrol. Start the bike morning and evening for a few days and it might cure itself.

Mechanics in this area charge about £30 per hour and may charge about £40 for a 4 stroke carb service including ultrasonic cleaning.
