Picked up 1980 CM200T a week ago. Clean stock bike with 12k miles. Replaced the 6 volt battery, changed the oil, cleaned air filter, and cleaned it up a bit. Bike fired right up but required carb cleaning. I’ve had the carbs off and on 3 times now running through Harbor Freight ultrasonic cleaner. Felt like I finally got it last night. The bike fires right up and idles great. Couple of things going on. As I ride it around the block, it seems to accelerate when I pull the clutch to up shift. Also, after this last install, it seems the choke is acting differently. Now rather that obvious changes at half and full choke, I get nothing till full choke when it stalls. Any advice before I pull the carb again?

Sounds like choke linkage is hanging up or one of the shafts. Oil the shafts where they enter to body and the linkage/springs.
