did you try to adjust the idle screw? its one screw in the middle of the four carbs, if that dosen't work your carbs probly need a rebuild

Carbs gummed up. Need a serious cleaning or a full ruubers replacement/rebuild kit. Gas turns to gummy when left stting in the fuel bowls.
Use a couple of cans of Sea Foam.. best stuff in the world.

is this while its runnig or not, sometimes the cluctch wont engage while the bike is not runnig, but will engage when running. its common. if not they may just be stuck. did you drain the oil and have the plates exsposed to elements while the engine was out of the frame. open the clutch plate cover, check that they look fine. other than that if the clutch is hydrolic check for air in the system. and also the fluid level. good look.

Sounds like the idle circuit in the carb is restricted. The engine is running on the choke only. When the engine reaches a certain temp the fuelthat does get is more readily burned allowing you to back off the choke. The choke probsbly can't be completely opened? right? Fuel quality is also something to consider Oil content in fuel affects combustion temps and volatility. _good luck_Ned_
