My 06 custom with 77,000 km will run best at 1/2 choke.

The carb was taken out and the jets ports were all cleaned, the floats seem OK.

I've tried spraying quality carb cleaners while running and ran some through the gas as well.

Any ideas?

I didn't mention that I've been running the set up for 8 years with no issues. 

I put on custom pipes then and rejeted the carbs.

I didn't do the work but the point is it ran great for years.

I store it with stabblizer each winter. This year I have the issues.

Stabilizer isn't a cure-all. Probably a clogged side hole in the pilots.
