Zero idle with VF1000R

HI all my new vf1000r has zero idle and only starts when hot with the choke fully on. The bike has 4600 miles is brand new lookin but sat for the last 2-3 years (covered with cobwebs) I changed the plugs put in new gas and carb cleaner and now i'm thinkin something is making it lean as can be cause of the choke/hot start deal. So i'll be pullin the tank (nice and easy!) lookin for vacumn leaks and last checkin the carbs inside for the usual. am i missin any tricks that anyone might know of with this bike?
Oh the bike runs just great at mid to high range and pulls strongly to red line(what a vibe)

Thanks in advance 4 any advice

Idle problem probably plugged carbs

I've got an '85 that idles fine. My guess is that the carbs are gummed up a little and the idle circuits are plugged. The only right fix is to disassemble them and thoroughly clean them.

Good luck!!
