SOURCE: GSX 600F idle and throttle probs
hi m8,, just a couple things,, wen u stripped the carbs down and cleaned them,, did u take the main jets and cold start jets,ie the jet that the needle in the carb sits in,, and poke the dirt out with a pin,, so u can see threw all the holes wen held to the light, u have a blockage still in the carbs,, undo bottoms of carbs take the main jet and the needle jet out ,,and clean ,, make sure your airbox is sealed down on the carbs and jubilee clips are tight,,,1 at a time pull off the spark plug cap and pull off the cap from its ht wire and snip a little bit off the end so u can see copper or brass stranded wire then screw cap back on ,do that to all 4 caps, do these checks ,the bike will run good, ,, look more in2 the carbs tho ,, its almost certain u have a bloked jet still

SOURCE: bike shut off when riding.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Your description indicates an electrical malfunction. Offhand, the jump start and charging is significant. This points to the bike's battery not charging. Suspects would be:

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher at hand when working on carburetors.
Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side of each carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, (not all bikes have a water trap bowl). Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.
FOR EACH carb > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Before putting the slides back in the throat of the carbs, Move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the carb back together and install the carbs. Sync the carbs such that the slides on both carbs move at the same exact instant when the throttle is slowly turned from idle speed. This process should get you back on the road.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Sounds like a lean condition. Spark plug should be a tan brown.
I would say the carb probably wasn't drained prior to storage and your main jet is gummed up. Gas deteriorates very quickly especially in vented containers like the float bowl of a carb.
clean your carb for sure.
