If your bike idles fine with the choke off but dies with 1/4 to full throttle position you likely have a vacuum piston stuck or an air intake/filter blockage. Pull out the air filter and inspect the air box and snorkel. Loosen the carburetor to airbox boots and pull the airbox towards the back of the bike. You should be able to sneak a finger around to push up the vacuum piston. If it is stuck, use a mild solvent like WD-40 or gasoline to break it loose. Don't use carburetor cleaner, it will ruin the vacuum piston diaphragm at the top. Drain the float bowls into a clear container to check for water and debris. If this doesn't fix it, you'll need to take the carbs off and take them to a mechanic for an overhaul.
