Sounds like the carb is running lean in the transition stage. If it is a pumper style carb, check the pump diaphram or plunger. If its not, try enrichening the pilot screw.

Hesitates and backfires

hi the air box and exhaust restrict the air movement through the cyclinders to match the jets in the carbs. i have bikes that you can remove baffles or airbox with no problem, others are so finely tunes that it is impossible to run the bike without the restriction. the easy option would be to get a jet and air filter kit. then if you need to restrict air flow any (hopefully you wont need to) you could very slightly raise the inlet/outlet valve gaps to the maximum amount which will open the valves for a slightly shorter time. you could also restrict the exhaust by using large washers on the exhaust gaskets. similar to those used to restrict a bike.

Bike starts right up in choke take it off choke shuts off

when you rejetted, did you also change the idle jets or just the main jets? if you didn't change the idle jets, that would probably help. remember you might also want to raise the float level height just a little bit to compensate for the extra fuel going out.

Bike cuts off when clutch is engaged on down shift.

Did you run out of gas? I know it sounds like a stupid question but I have seen it happen before. If your getting fuel to the carbs then I would have to say check the carbs floats. They may be sticking shut.

Lack of power starting off from 1st gear

Let the clutch out a little slower or give it a little more gas. Its an old bike just like mine. you have to work with it. I have the same problem. It does not do this in any other gear because your already moving. If its a major issue for you then you should have the carbs rechecked. It could be a problem with the jetting.
