How many RPMs on full choke? ZL600 1997

It use to be about 5000rpm when cool and climb up to 5500 in about 30-40 sec them
on half-choke about 3000rpm
and idle at about 1000rpm

The thing is, the other morning I went to start the bike and on full choke went only to 3000rpm and when I took the choke off it just dies.

I put some Gummout in the tank and now it runs with not choke, but on full choke only goes to 3000rpm.
When I ride it with no choke it has no power, any ideas?

I just clean the carbs about 3 moths ago, it was riding great and the next morning this.

Maybe you didn't clean the carbs good enough? There's two jets in each carb. The smaller one is for idle and the hole is super small on my bike and the other is for when you're riding at higher rpm's.

I know I had trouble with mine, I cleaned them and still had trouble and I had to run a real thin wire through the idle jet to get all the debris out. Spraying with just the carb cleaner didn't work. I went through each hole with a needle and used the wire where I couldn't fit the needle. It worked for me. It doesn't take much to clog your jets.
