The remedy is to shrug the shoulders, slow down as though one had all the time in the world and.... "Endeavour to persevere!"

Your idle circuit is messed up. Remove the carbs from the bike. Remove the idle screws, and spray some carb cleaner in there. Let it sit for a few minutes to loosen up the gunk, then blow it out with compressed air.
If you're not familiar with carbs, take a look at this schematic to get an idea of what I'm describing.
You'll need to be careful with the idle screws (Part 16014 in the schematic). They have a spring to put tension on them, a small washer and a small o-ring in there. You want to remove all that stuff *before* you start spraying cleaner in there or blowing with compressed air.
After you're finished cleaning and you go to put the carbs back together, you want to screw the idle screws all the way in (gently--they're brass and very delicate), and then count the number of turns as you loosen them. You probably want to start with 2 1/4 turns out or so.

|MileHighVulcan||Got the metal plate off and try adjusting both screw but it seem as the bike wouldn't run without choke at all... I try closing it on both carbs and opening it *screw closer to me* Im still not able to run the bike without some choke. I still need to try to open the screw to see if the bike would die while coming to a stop or slow down while riding.|

|michiganteddybear||yes the mixture screw lives behind that plug.. its soft, be careful drilling it, really just need a hole in it so that you can stick something in and pry it out|

|MileHighVulcan||So, to get to the fuel switch screw I would have to drill both of the plate out to get to the screw ?|

Removing the air box frees up a lot of space, makes carb service easier. The airbox is just riding along now.
Are the carb vents still running into one ear? Ears still in place? Vents need to be in calm, still air.
