It most definitely is NOT the carbs since the 1900cc Raider is fuel injected.

Your carburetors need to be cleaned. The pilot jets are at least partially plugged.
If you are comfortable doing this yourself, you need to remove the seats, fuel tank, and air induction system before you will be able to get the carbs out. Be carefull when removing the fuel tank, there is a wire harness that will need to be un plugged from it to remove it. The wire harness plug runs under the plastic tray under the seat. There are 3 plastic rivits that will need to be removed to get to the plug. The carbs come out as a pair, and can be tough to get back in the boots.
You need to remove the float bowls, remove the jets, and blow carb cleaner and compressed air through them all. The pilot jets are most likely the only culprit, but you might as well clean everything if your going to all the trouble. You should also blow carb cleaner and compressed air through all of the other passages while your at it. Make sure that you can see through the jets and there is no debris left in them. Make sure to clean the floats, needle valves, and float bowls as well.
This happens when the bike sits for long periods. The fuel we get now days has a very short shelf life before it goes bad. Fuel oxydizes over time, and it happens even faster in a small amount that is vented which is exactly as it is when its in the carburetors of a motorcycle. When fuel oxydizes and evaporates, it leaves a gummy mess behind. The pilot jets are the smallest passages that sit in the fuel, so they naturally plug first.
You can prevent this by keeping fuel stabilizer in your fuel when ever the bike will be sitting for long periods of time. Myself personally, when I store one for the winter, I like to leave the carbs empty.

You will have a carby problem. When the choke is one, and different fuel circuit is used. When you turn off the choke, you go back to the idle circuit of the carb is used, when under throttle, main jets kick in. You probably have a blockage in one of these circuits. Strip the carb down, clean with carby cleaner, blow out all air circuits and jets with compressed air, then setup the idle mixture and tick over speed. Always work with fresh fuel, and drain off, discard any fuel older than a couple of months. It goes off, and turns to a gel like substance that blocks up your carby. Hope this has explained your problem. Happy to talk to you more about it. A FixYa vote is a great reward for for my time taken to explain this to you. Cheers

Open up the carb and clean the jets with pressurized air. I also suspect water on the carburetor reservoir, before opening the carb, drain it first then run. Also, make sure the plugs are clean. Pull on the choke when twisting the accelerator, if it accelerates well, then warm the beast at normal temperature first before twisting the throttle hard again.
hope this helps-

Sounds like a fueling problem either water in the carbs or the fuel flow from the tap is insufficient. If there is a vacuum pipe it may have been dislodged or holed.
Please mark this as useful (if it has been!!)
