Question about Motorcycles
No matter what the rpm's are the motor revs up and down. I changed oil, fuel filter nother helps. Also tried choke adjustment.

This to me sounds like you need a carb cleaning. If you have let the bike sit for an extended time the carberators maybe clogged or gummed up. This has to do with the new gas that is out there now. It is cheap and with the introduction of Ethanol alcohol now it is even worse on being stable for long periods of time. I have seen fuel go bad in as little as 3 weeks.. One quick check you can do is open you fuel tank and smell the fuel. IF it smells like varnish it is probably bad. You can drain the tank and add new fuel and that should solve your problem. Keep in mind, that the carbs need to be drained as well to get the old fuel out of there also. Make sure you have a battery charger going when you start crankin that puppy, because you will need lots of extra juice to get that baby to fire up. If it is starting now and runs on choke, that means your idle jets are clogged. Best repair is to remove carbs and clean idle jet. Unless it is fuel injected.
Let me know how that goes and we can proceed from this point. I am a certified mechanic from MMI as well as a HDTV GURU. Smiles. have a good one.

I have seen this before a few things to do too make sure. First take the air filter out and shine a light use your fingers to move the slides up and down I suspect the springs that go on the slide is not seated in center you can tell from the slide going halfway and hanging up. Next, the boots on the slides only go on 1 way there is a notch on the carbs for them. I would guess this would fix you up if not we can get deeper into it with air-fuel mix screw settings.good luck

SOURCE: Will not rev over 8000 rpm
This is hard to tell without riding it to feel the condition. Here are a few things that come to my mind.
1 Spark plugs or ignition system not able to handle the higher demands of the higher RPMs
2 battery or charging system not creating enough power to meet the higher demands of the bike (ignition and fuel systems)
3 Fuel flow to the carbs is low or the main jet is clogged.
4 valve adjustment and or valve timing

Your '98 Evo motor is what they call a "head breater" engine. This means that the crankcase ventilation is at the upper end of the heads rather than way down at the lower end of the engine like it used to be. They the first year for the "head breaters" was 1994.
Now, At the top of the heads where the rocker boxes are, there are three pieces. The lower rocker plate with the rocker arms in it, the middle piece and the upper cover. If you take the four bolts out, you'll see an umbrella valve in the middle piece of the rocker boxes. This valve is a replacable rubber piece. Over time and many times of heating up and cooling down, they can get brittle and allow a lot of blowby resulting in oil in your air filter element.
Now there is another part in the cam chest that has a lot of effect on the operation of the crankcase breather system on your bike. This part is called the "breather gear" and is located down in the cam chest to the rear of the camshaft. In you bike, the part is made of plastic if it's the original part. I have seen the teeth break off of the drive gear and the breather gear stop turning. This will screw up the "breathing cycle" on your engine and cause it to "blow oil". Usually, the oil pump locks up when this happens due to the plastic teeth getting in the oil pump but not always. If this eventually turns out to be your problem, have the mechanic or yourself install one of the new S&S reed valve type breather gear replacements. They don't turn at all and work absolutely great. The part is about a hundred dollars but it's well worth it. Solves the old broken breather gear problem that has plauged the Evo engine it's entire life.
There are no "screens" in the Evo engine other than the "tappet oil screen". Just in front of the oil pump is a screw plug that is in the engine cases itself. If you remove this plug, there is a small spring and cone shaped screen that filters the oil prior to it going to your tappets. This should be cleaned every other oil change but it has nothing to do with the oil in your breather.
Now some riders will tell you that if you allow your Harley to sit for any length of time that it will "oil sump" with you. By this, they mean that oil will seep past the check ball in your oil pump and pool up in your crankcase. When you start the engine up, oil will be blown into your oil filter. Not true on your Ultra. The bikes that will oil sump are the Sportsters, Softails, Shovelheads, or any bike that the oil tank is higher than the oil pump on the frame. On your Ultra, the oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. Your bike will not "oil sump" unless you have a sheared key in your oil pump or the oil has somehow learned how climb. You oil tank is below your pump in other words and oil does not flow uphill.
