Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting ***** set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture ***** set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.

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.

Adjust your idle screw on your carb so that it gets more gas just sitting there at idle. Tighten the screw one and a quarter turn and then start the bike. Adjust the idle to where you think it sounds normal. If that doesnt work check your float in your float bowl, it might be stuck in the down position. Clean with some carb cleaner spray and make sure it moves freely before putting the float bowl back on, youll have to choke it or prime the carb again to get it started. All the choke does is let in more gas and oxegen so you might want to check how far the carbs close when you push the choke back in. Is it impeading any normal carb setting. Check that too. Good luck.

Sounds like your carb. may be gummed up. Did you start the bike and let the carb. get stabilized fuel into it when you parked it?

If the bike has sat for a long period of time without being run - the gas that is sitting in the carb(s) will shellac.. Then the carb(s) would need to be cleaned and "rebuilt"..

Remove and clean the carb. Sitting around can let the gas evaporate. This leaves a varnish residue in the carb. Remove the carb then remove the float bowl. Use a spray carb cleaner to spray into the jets and carb circuits. Remove the throttle screw and air screw and spray into the screw holes. The low speed idle circuit is the problem so concentrate on the air screw hole. Put both screws back where they came from and turn each until it LIGHTLY seats. Now back each screw one and one half turns. This is the factory setting. If the bike still does not want to idle, there is still some varnish or trash plugging up the idle circuit.
