96 ZR 440 smoking

I cleaned the carbs and had the sled out yesterday it ran great. When I went to ride it today it was smoking and back firing. It would bog down with any throttle. It sat for about 5 hrs and I started it back up it ran a little better only popping a little but I can give it throttle now but it smokes more and will idle for about 2 mins before it dies. Any help?
