Yes! You will open those things up, and they will probably look pretty clean, but the problem with your carbs is in the Idle circuit - too small for you to see into. If you do a search of carb cleaning or related topics, you'll see that alot of folks with cab problems try to clean their carbs ... only to have to open them up again due to improper cleaning (They are difficult to clean properly, require alot of patience) So, I would suggest that you have them cleaned professionally, or at least buy good carb dip to get them really clean. Spray cans of carb cleaner are worthless. Might as well wash em with dish soap.

I have had several bikes in my time. and keeping the carbs syncranized is very important. Did you put aftermarket pipes on it? try rejeting the carbs up 2+mm that may help the fuel air ratio?

Good choice of bike, I have the same!
Is it an early bike with points? If so this could be the problem (I can give you advice on setting them up if needed).
Check the simple things first. Take your plugs out and check their condition and colour. You want to see a biscuit brown colour. Are any wet or sooty? Are they the correct NGKB8ES plugs? Also check the plug caps. Take them off (they unscrew) and check for corrosion. Repace with new ones if they look bad.
Charging issues can also cause problems, so check that the system is healthy. Put a meter accross the battery, with the bike running, slowley increase the revs and check for a voltage increase to around 14volts dc.
These bikes have a bullet proff engine, its often electrical issues that let it down.
