This damned old 1100 again
This bike is killing me, with chasing problems, this time it started with it running on time on one cylinder after I had cleaned the carbs bench sync. I had it running near perfect after the first time I cleaned it but I stalled it towards the end of first ride and it hasn't been right since. I don't recall hearing a pop but I checked for a vacuum leak using carb cleaner around the boots, and replaced those.
Still on one cylinder so I started playing with the sync while it was running, after back the screw almost all the way out before any change but after I re cleaned and sync the carb this time as shown (last time I leveled the butterflies at full) it's now revs up and good back to idle but I still can't open the chock even half way.
The only thing I can think of is that the rubber boots from the air box to the carbs being dry rotted and cracked is letting in too much air, I unfortunately can't find the parts new without them being 20+ apiece, and I'm also concerned that fixing that will only show more problems that needs fixing.

Consider, your decisions often affect others more than you.
