Restoring a 93 xv1100

Hi. I'm new to the forum thing but I am thankful there are others out there to discuss this stuff with. I am restoring a 93 xv1100 that sat for nearly 10 years! I had rust in the tank and the carbs were seized. I rebuilt the carbs and got 90% of the rust out of the tanks and at first it would only run on ether. Well I have got it to the point where it will run on its own on choke but stalls immediately if I take it off of choke or try to crack the throttle. I gotta say it runs smooth on choke and I am really excited so far but I am a little frustrated and I hoped there might be someone who can point me in my next direction for getting things back to where they need to be. I know that I need to balance the carbs (I think they may be pretty close already and that I should be able to get more out of them where they are at) I used a stock yamaha rebuild kit and replaced the jets with exact matches to what came out. I know that there were no problems with the bike running before it sat for so long. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

XV1100 suggestion

Try looking up I believe your problem is related to your carburetors.

1984 XV1000
1985 VMX1200
