Default 1982GS1100L Carburetors

Hi, my bike has been sitting a few years. Last year it ran, but one of the carburetors didn't work right. It was running good on three cylinders. This year I took off the carburetors, and the floats were all working right. But, it will only run with the choke on, and if you give it throttle, it goes flat. If you barely ease the throttle it will get up to 3,000 to 4,000 rpm before dying. If you don't have the choke on, it won't run. It acts like it is starving for gas but it is firing. The carburetors have gas in them, but it is not getting to the engine. Any suggestions anyone?

Sounds like your slow speed circuit and possibly your mainjet circuit is clogged still.
Remember it's not just the jet you have to clean and clear but the body as well. Good luck!
