Question about Honda Motorcycles
Sounds like a clogged main jet in carburetor, requires dissassembly and cleaning; or water in carb: drain carb at drain screw located on bottom of carburetor; or due to age you have an air leak caused by rotten rubber parts ie; vacuum hoses, rubber carb mounting boot etc... You can spray around these areas with aerasol carb cleaner while idling to locate the leak. engine will die when leak is found.

Check the carbs if all jets are well placed, needles all at same height, float levels equal, collars between carbs and cil head all tight, rubbers not punctured or broken...

Have you removed the carby and removed the jets and cleaned them? also is the compression OK? Is the exhaust blocked...Try loosening off the 2 10mm nuts at the cly that holds the exhaust pipe, drop the pipe down a little and try for power. if its better the mufler is blocked..the outlet could have a nest in it or carbon and rust has blocked it.You can cut them open and clean them, but must have the tools and know how...

More than likely, the idle (pilot) jet is partially clogged. This is common when it will idle fine with the choke on, but won't idle without it. Sometimes a fuel treatment will clean the carburator, but not usually successful in cleaning the idle jet. Usually it requires removing the carburator bowl and and cleaning with the use of a gauge wire. The idle jet is usually recessed (next to the main jet).
A good video to show a generic carburator rebuild can be found at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exa467_eoXw The guy goes through a pretty detailed description while going throught the process. The carburator will not look exactly like yours, but it will be similar internally.
