VStar 1100 chokes when into gear and accelerating

Hi I have a V Star 1100, the engine chokes when I turn into gear. How to know if it is the carburator or an electrical issue?

It powers on fine and the battery seem to be retaining charge.

Thanks for any pointers.

The simplest test is to hook up a strobe timing light and see if it flickers regularly or not for both cylinders. If it does, you can (almost) eliminate ignition as the culprit, as the chance of the timing being off is very slim.
Having the same issue with a 650 probably fuel or air
Mine starts and runs fine for a while then either losses spark in a cylinder or fule .. I'm assuming spark but no real idea what's going on I'll let u know what they find when I find out
