SOURCE: choke on

Sounds like your idle jet is clogged. This is caused by gasoline evaporating out of the carburator during long periods of disuse which can leave a varnish residue. You will probably need to remove the float bowl and remove the jet to clear it as carb cleaning additives in the gasoline are usually useless for this problem. It is vital that you use the exact fit screw driver on float bowl screws as they are usually very tight. The jet will have a very small opening and you could damage the jet if you use the wrong method to clean it (do not use a drill bit). First try a carburator cleaner spray with the small plastic straw that comes with them. Look thru the jet hole by holding it up to a strong light to see that it is indeed clogged. Then try holding the small straw in the jet orifice and forcing the cleaner into and through the jet. Be careful that you don't deflect the spray back into your eyes. Use eye protection. You could try to soak the jet in a cap full off the cleaner for a while. If that doesn't work a very small stiff wire might work to push the clog out (from a wire brush?). Then try the spray method again.

SOURCE: 2002 suzuki LS 650 running lean at higher speeds, (off idle)

this prob happens allways in carburated engines that the car or motorcycle is running lean or rich . because the air - fuel mixture ratio is not right . so you should open the carburator and remove the air filter you will find two screws in the lower front section of your caeburator. you can adjust them by a screw driver until your car is smooth

Dirty carbs. Remove from bike and disassemble each carb and clean them thoroughly. one or more of the small passageways in the carb can be clogged with a small piece of dirt or eve carbon build up. Stale fuel will "gum" them up to

SOURCE: kawasaki drifter 1500 engine does not stay

You don't mention which intake you have but you probably DO know that this motorcycle is Fuel Injected.
If you're using the stock intake, make sure the air filter is clean.
I'd also -highly- recommend that you clean the throttle bodies near where the butterflies are located. These are known to carbon up and the little ring of carbon around them impedes airflow.
Next (again if it's a stock intake setup) get yourself a can of Sea Foam and introfuce it into each throttle body per the instructions on the can.
I use a syringe and fire 10cc's directly into each TB, shut it off and let it sit for a ferw minutes.
Seafoam in the tank will help clean your injectors as well.
I always use it in higher concentrations then called for and the bikes always resond well to this treatment. Fact is, the bike would run just fine with only the seafoam in the tank,
Are you running an aftermarket FI controller?
These can be adjusted as well.
I own a 2005 Drifter 1500 and an 06 1500 Classic with 24000 and 51000 miles on them respectively. FINE MOTORCYCLES.

are all the spark plugs like that? Are you sure its oil and not gas? try pinching the gas line (so it cant get gas). if it runs better you are getting too much fuel. if it is oil on the plugs could be a bunch of things. Rings, piston, vacuum hoses, ect.

Bike wont kick start or idle , it will coast

first drain the carby, then set your air mixture screw 2 turns out, from the fully turned in position. The starting proceedure is as follows, when the engine is COLD, turn on fuel, pull on the choke fully, and kick the engine over. DO NOT use any throttle, when the engine is cold, and the choke is on. Remember Choke on, NO throttle.
When warm, no choke, and a little throttle when kicking.
