Ohhhh,
Ummmmmmmmm, this might get long.

How invested in the bike are you?
And how much spare time, effort and money do you have?

How much mechanical skill do you have?

First things first.

Safety, drain all the gas from the bike. We will run it off carb cleaner.

You did something, now bad things are happening.

Assume you are the moron that made the bad things happen.

Check to see if you messed up the spark plugs.

If you did, fix that.

Once you know they are good, give the carbs a good cleaning, take them off, clean the float bowls, spray out the jets, check the seats, ect.

Your basic carb once over.

Now with no fuel in the bike, start it and run it off carb clean for a bit. Listen if the engine is running right.

Once you have it running on carb clean. Check for vacuum leaks.

If the bike did ok so far then we can try with gas again.

Side note:

This forum is dead, I am just a old bone vulture wandering through the ruins.

You might want to find different community, it is very unlikely that you will get much help here.

Even I am only here every once in a while.
