Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, pls try recharging the battery again. Remove the connector to the voltage regulator. Start/run the bike. If it lasts more than "3-5 minutes" then you have just confirmed a defective regulator. The voltage regulator would look something like below image.
This page may give you additional insight.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Here are two solutions for you:
A - Take the carberator off and soak it in some good quality carb cleaner for about 1/2 an hour. That should take care of any residue in the carbs.
B - Alternatively (and for the less technical minded) there is a great product called Sea Foam. Try to find it at your local CSK auto/NAPA/Wal-Mart. Pour a small amount (maybe 1/4 ounce) into each cylinder chamber (take out the spark plugs), try to pour a small amount into the carbs (a turkey baster works great for this), and pour the rest into the gas tank. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then start it up. *NOTE - the bike will start VERY hard at first until it burns through what's in the cylinders. ALSO the fumes will be EXTREMELY strong and suffocating - make sure you do this OUTDOORS preferably, or at least in a VERY well ventilated area.
Good luck - I know how frustrating these things can be! :)
P.S. - I am a proud owner of a V-Star 1300 - great bikes! :)

More than likely some grit or build-up is stopping the float bowl needle from stopping the fuel flow through the needle valve seat.
To test and clean, turn off fuel tap and drain fuel from carby via drain plug. Loosen carby manifold clamps and rotate carby enough to undo floatbowl. Return carby to level position and place a spill container underneath carby, turn fuel tap on and off (enough to allow small flow of fuel through open needle seat).
Now, gently hold up floatbowl with enough lift to close off needle valve seat and turn fuel tap on. If fuel still comes out you have a severe needle and seat problem requiring a replacement, if only a small weep of fuel is emitted it may just need a clean with a carby cleaning spray.
If no fuel comes out, your problem is the height adlustment of the floatbowl's level. Your engine is not using all the fuel that can be delivered and flows out the overflow outlet. The floatbowl level should be re-set incrementally to avoid leaning out your engine at high revs with too low a float level. To close off with a lower level you need to bend the small tab upwards.
The link below is for the same carby in exploded view format with all parts named. Cheers!

If the carb is adjusted correctly, the engine will not idle without the choke when cold. I will usually take at least 3 to 5 miles of riding to get the engine warm enough to idle by itself without the choke. If your bike is a full operating temperature, it should idle at about 1000 RPM. If it's idling higher than this, you need to slow it down a bit.
Remove the air filter cover and look at the top right side of the carb. You'll see a screw there . This is the throttle stop screw. Turn the screw counterclockwise to lower the idle speed to 1000 RPM or so. Blip the throttle and let it settle back to idle. Reset it if necessary. Once set, put the air cleaner cover hand on.
