Bogging

I have an 87 arctic cat panther that is bogging off the line up to about clutch engagement. It also won't rev above higher rpms almost like its governed. I've cleaned the Carb twice and tried adjusting the fuel/air mixture. It was running great until the other day. Any ideas as to what it may be?

Clutches are spotless.... One of my spark plug boots is dry rotted and has small cracks in it. The sled is still firing on both cylinders but could that boot be the problem?

It is certainly not helping.
Replace them as a pair and when you do, clip off 1/4" of the cable so that you get a good contact inside.
