1985 Honda saber 750

I have a an 85 Honda saber 750, the bike runs but revs up and down a bit on its own. the bike will also not run unless the choke is on. Any help would be great.

It sounds like you may have an air leak somewhere, the surging idle is usually an indication of that, plus having to run the bike with the choke means you have to be giving it more fuel, which also seems to fit with the extra air coming in.
On dirt bikes you can spray WD40 on the engine while it's running and if the idle changes when you spray in a certain place that will indicate your air leak.
I don't know if all of this applies to street bikes, hopefully someone else can confirm it?
