Cry XR650L Carb Question

I have never worked on a carb before so don't assume I know anything at all about this

My bike ran fine a few weeks ago but last night wouldn't idle with the choke off. From reading around it looks like this is almost always caused by clogging of the pilot jet (slow jet). I pulled the carb tonight, easy enough, and unscrewed the pilot jet. It appears to be clean as a whistle.

I noticed that with the main jet I can blow air into the end where the screwdriver turns it, and air free flows out the other end, with the small holes. The pilot jet is blocked. A wire or pin won't poke through even with a lot of force so I thin this is by design.

This is an '01 bike. The smog stuff was removed and I think it was re-jetted. Not exactly sure on the details, I bought it used and just ride it.

Any other ideas? Thanks!
