xl185s dies on throttle

I'm stumped on this one. A few days ago, I rode about 5 miles on the bike without a problem. Today I went to start it up and it started (with choke), but died with a little puff when I twisted the throttle. I started it back up, let it run for five minutes, but it still died when I gave it even a tiny bit of throttle. I'll clean the carb and check the fuel filter. The air filter is good.

I'm afraid it could be the timing. Listing to it, there is a click on each stroke. Here's an MP# of the bike running until I give it a tiny bit of throttle:

Any other ideas?
