You probably have varnish build up in the carburetors, causing restricted air flow, and therefore the engine is running too lean, especially on the right side, and a lean running engine will run hot at the exhaust. It only idles when the choke is on because the choke creates a richer fuel supply. A can or two of commercial fuel cleaner through the fuel supply may get the engine's jet's orifices cleaned out. Otherwise, overhaul the carbs.
Hey, nice old bike, though. Good luck
