Hey there, Chap. Why are you idling at 600? Proper idle speed is 1100 RPMs, so maybe you just need to adjust your idle screw to maintain 1100 RPMs at idle. That would be a simple fix. Also, if you're gonna put her away for the winter, put some seafoam in the tank, ride a few miles and when you're back home run the bike with the fuel shut-off valve in the OFF position until she dies out. This way there won't be much fuel in the carbs to gunk up. You should also keep your battery on a battery tender so it stays charged properly. (I hope you have a glass mat sealed MF battery, and not a stock wet cell). As for taking the carbs out, if you need to do it then do it now. Gunked up carbs will only be harder to clean after the winter is over.
BTW, welcome to the forum. Lots of good people here to help. it might be a good idea to create a signature line so we can all see what year your ride is and what mods you've performed, etc.. It helps others to help you out easier.
