Sounds like a carb problem there. If you are going to take the carb apart, and before you do, just remove the main jet in the center of the bowl and clear the very small holes in the bowl nut before you try anything else. The bowl nut can be removed and still leave the bowl in tac on the carburetor. If you remove the bowl make sure you check the copper float to see that you don't have a leak in it. If you do, then the float is too heavy to shut the needle valve off thereby causing flooding. Those copper floats do leak and gasoline will get in them. Remove the pin that keeps the float on, then dry off the float and give it a good shake. If there is gas in the float you'll probably see the float get wet with gas or you may hear the gas flopping around inside the float. If so replace the float and the needle valve as well as install a new o ring so the bowl will have a leak free fit when you install the bowl. Take a good look at the bowl before you put it back on. It'll have an indent into it. The indent should be put in place with the float pin. Good luck

Coughs and splutters till about 6500 revs when power valve cuts in it seems fine but got to keep revs up

6500 rpms? Just how fast are you driving my friend?

You have serious fuel issues (not to mention the need for speed issue). Your trouble is in your fuel delivery system. ... probably too much.

Bike coughs,splutters and even backfires more so in low rev's

Either take the carbs off and clean them or add some fuel additive to clean the system. Sounds like you have a clogged jet.
