Did you synchronize the carbs after you put them back on the bike? If you didn't that's where I'd start next. If you did synchronize them, I would suggest you pull both coils, pull all (4) four plug wires and make sure they are all in good condition.

How do your spark plugs look? Are they all tan colored or is there a difference in how they look? Have you checked in the plug end boot to ensure the resistor screws are good and tight? While you have the plugs out have you cleaned them and checked the gap? Little things can add up to a poor running engine. Carbs out of synch, poor or intermittent spark, dirty or fouled plugs, improper plug gap, bad plug wire(s), loose resistor in plug end boot ... too many possibilities to count.

More information would be helpful, for sure.
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

Need to ask what you mean by "cleaned the carbs". ?? What exactly have you done with them?

You could try running the bike with a dose of Seafoam to see if that will help. Those symptoms could be either fuel or spark related. Check the plugs to see how it is firing.
