Clean the air filter and, if you have one, remove the water trap bowl on the fuel petcock and clean it. How good is the battery? Install new STOCK plugs. Bear in mind it may be time for carb kits. Other than your cleaning the carbs, the carb kits and balancing and synchronizing of the carbs are best left for the shop to do.
Check the exhaust pipes. If there is a restriction in the burned gases exiting the tailpipe then the bike will not run right, will loose power and even die if too much back pressure builds up. Disconnect the exhaust system and tick off the neighbors with a quick ride around the block without a muffler. If the engine still dies then exhaust is not likely to be the problem.
Check the compression on all cylinders. Depending on the compression, the bike may be ready for a valve job. If you pull the head for the valve job then you might as well consider re-boring the cylinders and install new pistons and rings. Bear in mind, doing a valve job and / or pistons is not recommended for the novice. The good part is that when the work is finished you will effectively have a new engine.

Did you start to drive away? Then stopped abruptly only to find your disk lock still on? From personal exp some time back I have done this. It will and has surely bent that one disk. The disk will wobble left to right forcing the brake fluid out and the pistons all the way into the caliper. If this is so....I bent mine back....Not the best thing to do, but it can get you home....Replace right disk.

thats a new one. People dump the airbox all the time and run k&n air filters instead. The airbox doesnt make that much of a difference. in fact, some actually work better without it.
