When I bought my 85 1200 it had been sitting for 2 years. I had to turn
the idle up so it would not die. Then I noticed it would stay revved up
when I shifted gears, making it sound like I didn't know how to ride
the bike. I added some fuel system cleaner to the gas, a bit stronger
than the bottle said. (A bit, not a lot!) It was slow, but I noticed
the idle getting faster. When I turned the idle back down, the revving
between gears stopped, and it ran more like it should. It sounds to me
like you still have some crud in the carbs. You might try something
like Sea Foam in the gas. It may save from pulling the carbs again!
