Well one area I recommend you to check is the power jets in the carb. Overall check your jettings because you are starving on high end. To test try closing your choke half way and see if that gives you more pull ower over 6K rev. Good enough?

How do you tell clutch is bad on 2000 susuki katana

When going about 50 mph, turn throttle fully open. If clutch is slipping, engine will rev but speed will not increase very much.

You have a vacum leak. It is going to be ya intake manifold. Best way to check it is to use some starting fluid and start the car and spray a very little around the intake. If the motors rpm goes up you know you have a bad intake gasket. If it doesnt then look for a vacum leak in the rear of your motor. There is about 4 vacum hoses there and one could be dryed out from the fire.

I have a 1998 susuki katana motorcycle that starts but then it will die out! i clean the carbs. dont know whats wrong with it?

There is a vaccum fuel valve, that shuts off the fuel when not running, if that line has a crack or leak it will not let fuel into the carb.

You need to check for exhaust back pressure--no more than 1 LB pr 1000 RPM.
One other problem-check amp draw on fuel pump-must be at least 8 amps or pump is not up to snuff.
