Hi, Anonymous if you have changed your fuel delivery system, air filter size or flow rate, mufflers or exhaust system or a significant change in altitude your carburetors need re-tuning and if your fuel system (gas tank, filters, fuel valve and carburetor) is contaminated with ethanol sludge, varnish, rust, dirt, water etc. or your bike has been sitting for months or years without running these components must be "PROPERLY" cleaned and reassembled "CORRECTLY" before any adjustments can be made. Tuning your carburetor is fairly simple once you understand the basic principals. You engine is a simple airbox sucking air in and blowing it out, it is finely tuned at the factory for maximum performance once you upset that delicate balance by changing air filters, camshafts or exhaust systems your performance may go down the and the engine may run poorly, you need to compensate the air-fuel mixture in the carburetor in order for the engine to run smoothly and at peak performance. If you are running multi carburetors you need to sync them first and make sure your air cleaner element is clean and dry for paper elements or lightly oiled for foam and meshed elements and properly installed. Here is how and where you compensate trouble: "TIP" if your engine "BOGS" your not getting enough fuel.
1. Closed to 1/8 throttle is managed by the air screw and pilot/slow jet.
2. 1/8 to 1/4 throttle is managed by the air-screw, pilot/slow jet, and throttle slide.
3. 1/4 to 1/2 throttle is managed by the throttle slide and jet needle.
4. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is managed by the jet needle, needle jet, main jet, and air jet.
5. 3/4 to wide open throttle is managed by the main jet and air jet.
6. Wide open throttle is managed by the main jet.
If you are running lean, spark plug electrode color is white, engine runs hot and feels like it is starving for fuel you need to go up on the jet size or move the c-clip down one notch. If you are running rich, spark plug color is black or dark gray, engine runs cool, and bogs down when accelerating you need to go down on jet size or move the c-clip up one notch. When your carburetor is properly tuned for maximum performance your spark plug electrode will be a light tan color like coffee with cream. If you prefer fuel economy over performance you can go down on main jet sizes until a satisfactory level of lower performance is acceptable versus MPH, your spark plug color will be whiter and your engine will run warmer. These tuning adjustments will only make improvements if your intake and exhaust system have no air leaks or sealing issues and the entire electrical system is in proper working order and you have no mechanical issues.

I would check if it still has stock jets. you need stage 1 or 2 dyno jet kit. To get best out of that upgrades also look for any vacum leaka

You need to check if there any bad grounds,
if you have any aftermarket lightining those may couse killing the battery. or have your battery checked or tested.

have you compression tested the cylinders ? if you dont have a gauge you can remove spark plugs and put your finger in plug hole and crank over and see if it blows your finger out ! could have bent the inlet or exhaust valves as well as the piston !

Replace the rings if this is how much oil you are using!

Have you done all the regular stuff? There are a number of interlock safeties on this bike. To start, key on of course, side stand up or in neutral, if in gear and clutch is engaged, it will not start, if the kill switch is in the off position, it will not start. Said differently, you must have the key in the on position, side stand retracted, transmission in neutral, clutch pulled in, kill switch in run position. Still will not start, check the start solenoid for proper operation. If that works ... suspect the starter motor.

remove the neg cable and place a test light between cable and post and see if light comes on,if so then start removing fuses until it goes out that will narrow down your problem, if the light does not come on have the battery check it could have a faulty cell

But did you also change the spark plug cap? It unscrews off the end of the wire . It should read 5000 OHMs any reading higher or lower and you replace the cap. NGK caps run about $5 each . I always recommend replacing them as a set.
