It does sound like its getting to much fuel, or the lack of air. Air filter ok? If it is you might need to have a compression check done to see how the piston rings are.

I would change the plugs and the air filter. Also I would put a full can of Techron or Seafoam in the gas tank and ride it to see if it clears up. If these bikes sit very long the slow jets in the carbs can partially or fully clog resulting in rough running. If the bike sits for long periods over 2 months I would also use a fuel stabilizer such as Seafoam or Stabil. Make sure when adding a fuel stabilizer that the bike runs long enough to get the additive in the carbs.

Howdy: Could be the floats. Idle good but rev it up and the gas goes lean. Use quick start sprayed in the air cleaner area and see if the bike will rev. If so check out the float adjustment. Could be a stuck needle to the floats shut off. Good luck - Doug
