a choke is designed to restrict air so that the mixture is rich (more fuel) for warm up. no choke should be used after 5 minutes or so. heres what you need to do. take the carb apart and on the bottom in the bowl of the carb are your jets make sure they are all clean and clear so that all circuits are open (quarter throttle, mid throttle and full throttle.) each jet controls parts of those three ranges. also turn your mixture screw which is usually located right under the motor sie of the carb. turn it all the way in then out 2 turns if you live in high elevation, turn it out only 1 turn and see how it all works. one last thing your problem might be solved by he second option first so try it first.

Check to see if the throttle bodies still have the little rubber nipple covers on the underside of the body also the LH TB has a controller on it could be that?

my 2001 just had that problem. Take off your air cleaner and look in the carb. There is a plastic venturi there that sticks. it will free up with your finger
