baldy When your bike is running at temp. what is it idling at? It should only idle around 1000 to 1100 rpm. Pulling the choke on after it warms up cuts of air and adds more full so it floods it out a bit. Since turning out my fuel/air screws I can only use 1/2 choke in moderate temps above 70 and in colder temps below 60 requires full choke.

where do you live? I live in fl its 80+ 10 months a year. i have no need for a choke. if i put my choke on my bike too will stall. if your carbs are rich the choking is not the best idea.
