Has the bike been in storage or not ridden for awhile? Sounds like it could be plugged jets. You are going through different circuits in the carb when the choke is out. I'm not much more than a shade tree mechanic but if I were you, that is where I'd start. How old is the gas that's in it? Might be worth draining what's in it, and the carbs, and starting with fresh stuff if it's kinda old. Even with Stabil in the system, the new gasoline around nowadays doesn't "store" real well. Carb cleaner might work, but if the jets are really plugged up, it will take removing the carbs and dismantling them...not a fun or easy task. Good Luck!!

The fact that you can start and run the engine is a great sign. In a case like this Seafoam is your bestfriend,follow the directions on the can and you will see a big improvement.Its great stuff.

I will try Sea Foam,then if it does not work i just got the Honda Factory repair manual and will start working on it. It set for about 5 years had rust in the fuel pump,Filter and tank so i think there is rust in the carbs. thanks everyone.
