Good morning
A similar problem is bothering the clock in our Suzuki. Our car mechanic does not have the electronic knowledge needed to put it right -or so he says-. He wants us to take the car to an electronics educataed car mechanic. We have not done that yet.
So I think you might be better off doing so.

Check your oil level. If it is too high, your oil may be full of gasoline. Your vacuum petcock may be leaking gas past a diaphragm or your float bowl needles are sticking and are over flowing gas into the engine. This causes your oil to be diluted with gas, the crankcase becomes too full, and the gasoline diluted oil is then blowing through the breather tube and into the air box. Needles sticking in the carburetors can happen at any time even to new motorcycles. If you have vacuum petcocks inspect the vacuum diaphragms for leaking. Clean the carburetors and replace the float needles if they show wear. Change the gas fouled oil and filter. Change your air filter if it is paper and has become oil fouled. Hope this helps.

If your bike has ever sat for more than a few months at any time, the carburetors could be plugged with gasoline residue. If so, they will need to be disassembled and cleaned.
Otherwise, make sure all of the normal tune up items have been performed; valves adjusted, air filter, spark plugs, etc. And make sure there are no air leaks between the carburetors and the engine.
Finally, if the above things are all good, then I would perform a compression check. With the throttle held wide open, you should see at least 140psi of compression, on every cylinder. Anything lower than that will cause an erratic idle quality and overall poor performance.

How did you celan the carbs?? Need to strip and dismantle all parts / blow out with compressed air / Check float adjustment etc./ reassemble, ensure there are no air leaks.

WELL YOU NEED TO CHARGE THE BATTERY UP AND THEN START THE BIKE AND SEE IF YOU ARE GETING 13.5 BETTER TO HAVE 14VOLTS WHEN RUNING IF YOU HAVE THAT OR MORE THE CHARGING SYTEM IS WORKING SO IT COULD BE BAD BATTERY IF YOU HAVE LOW VOLTAGE THEN THE CHARGING SYSTEM IS NOT WORKING AND IT COULD BE VOLTAGE REGULATOR

It's between three & four quarts. After you change the oil & filter, put two quarts of oil in it, then look in the sight glass while the bike is standing straight up. Add oil 1/2 quart at a time until you see oil in that sight glass. Fill until the sight glass has oil at least over the center, but not all the way to the top.

The spark plugs on this bike fire # 1 & 3 and 2 & 4 at the same time. Number 1 fires first so there is no worry on plug wires if that's your concern. There is only 2 coils and 2 plug wires coming out of each. Make sure you connect the wires from the # 1 coil to # 3 and the other coil is # 2 and # 4.
Let me know if you need any other specific information.

Sounds like the chain is worn out and needs replacing if there is no more adjustment!

A good idea is to replace the sprockets at the same time, as they wear along with the chain, and will cause a new chain to wear out sooner.

You need a new chain, a worn chain will not match up properly with a new gear/cog. You can do this yourself, the chain should have a link that will come apart.
