Question about Motorcycles
Sounds like a fuel problem. maybe try cleaning the carbs again and pay particular attention to the main jets also make sure you adjust and reset the floats in the bowls by getting the specs for the carbs and positioning the carbs at the appropriate angle and measuring the angle that the floats rest at and bending them to the proper position. one way or the other it sounds like it is being starved for fuel. check the fuel filter just for the heck of it.

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?

open up the ignition cover plate and check the backing plate. it may have come loose and threw the bike out of time.
make sure your plug wires are plugged on tight and the coil wires are secure.
It is most definitely a timing problem.
