You didn't say whether you were using old gas or fresh or whether you were using ETHANOL gas but It sounds like a bad gas problem. Get some fresh, high test gas and try that

I just cleaned the carb and now it starts and runs fine, but starts burning oil after a couple of minutes. Did I get it wrong on assembly?

There is a series of spacers and gaskets that go on in a specific order. I can't remember offhand. If you get them on wrong it can mess up the alignment of the choke control which causes it to bind up and not move freely. That can make the engine run rich and smoke which makes it look like it is burning oil.
Check online for an exploded view of the gaskets and spacers along with the bracket for the choke control. Make sure they are aligned properly.

Runs rough unless you choke while driving,leaks gas out of 1 of the carbs on rt. side

That is one of the best signs that the carbs need rebuilding and cleaning. On a Valkyrie there are SIX carbs. Take it to someone who knows what they are doing. When it's done Hang on it will run like new.

Wont run off 1/2 choke

I had a problem with a honda generator that would only run on full choke. I removed the carburetor and cleaned the main jet with a wire and carb spray. Problem solved. Fuel stabilizer should be used with todays gas mixtures that have ethanol in them. Hope this helps.

Homelite gas trimmer will not run without half choke and throttle

You need to disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. If you need tips on how to do this, just let me know. You may need a new carb. kit as well, but we won't know that until you first perform the first step, or if the carb. parts are more than 3 years old. If they are, then go ahead and buy the carb. kit and replace the parts.

Honda EU3000is generator will not start with electric starter.

I'd say your battery in the generator is going bad or bad. They are very small and do not hold a charge for very long. The noise you heard was probably the starter shaft hitting the flywheel cogs. I doubt any harm was done as long as you did not repeatedly try to start it with the key. Why Honda put a battery in these is because they are intended for use in a campground setting, where they would be used on a daily basis and the battery would constantly charged. Whereas people like us buy them for emergencies only, they sit for long periods, and the battery goes flat, and the fuel clogs the carb and we get the surging issue. That's my 2 cents. When I brought mine home new, I Sta-bil'd the heck out of the gasoline, this past winter, on start-up, the unit surges. Of course the battery was flat.
