Hey,
I havnt used my monster in 3 weeks ;D doesnt do good.
I return to it, started it. fully chocked after 4 sec the engine dies.
I give it a lil gaz, the RMP goes up to 1800, once I let go after 3 secs the engine dies.
Anyone?

whens the last time u checked ur plugs? (pay attention to what they look like. it will tell you how your eng is running) put in fresh ones, charge ur battery. after choking and ur fired up, twist throttle and maintain around 3000 rpm (release choke at this time).
warm it up for awhile.
release the throttle to idle (approx 1000 rpm) does she hold or stall?
pay attentention to ur rpms, are they lower than a grand at idle?
you may need to adjust ur idle.

get out and run the bike around the hood, it's been sittin, blow out the carbon!

I got the bike to run after a 10mns warm up.
I had to ride it filly or half way choked, otherwise it stalled at red lights. it fired up alot at one point. I got pulled over 2x today cuz the bike was too laud and it fired up too much.
The bike might be too lean since I installed slip-ons and did jet it yet...

well there u have it, why didn't ya say say u changed the cans and didn't rejet. :-/
bet if u pull the plugs they will be tellin ya a story.

By the way, never run with the choke opened, not a smart idea...if the bikes not running right, get to the source and fix! ;)
