Bike Starts with Choke, but Dies with Gas

So, I'm having a problem. I have 2006 yamaha yzf600r. I havent ridden it in awhile, so that may be part of the problem.

My bike will start with the choke on. I'll let it warm up for a few minutes, then when I try and turn the choke off, it dies. If I leave the choke on and give it a little gas, it dies right away.

Any thoughts?

You may be able to run sea foam or chem tool for a little bit and clear it up

They are right clean the carbs first, then sync them. That should fix you up. I had to do that to mine to get it running right. If you have any questions about how to clean or sync them let me know.

Had the exact same issue on a Honda 599. The issue was a clogged low-speed jet on cylinder 4. Or was it cylinder 1? Anyway, I removed the carbs, took out the low-speed jet in question, cleaned it up, and put everything back together. Ran like a champ. No carb sync required.

Seafoam and carb-cleaner type stuff didn't have any effect, btw.

Please don't waste your time on Seafoam, it will not do anything near what you need to do on that bike. I can take my carbs off on my yzf and clean them in a very short period of time. Probably faster then you can run a tank of gas with seafoam in it through the bike.

I had the same issue on a bike and Chem tool cleaned it out when Sea Foam wasn't strong enough. Just don't get it on the paint.
