I think too much gas not sure

from what you describe it sounds like a carb issue. I have seeen carbs that were cleaned a month ago have issues. The gas is just crappy.

One problem I had on my 650 was the red kill switch on the handle bar. It was shorted out I by passed it and the problem was gone. Of course this is a safety issue but a safety tether from the motorsports store was cheaper then a new kill switch.

I cleaned the carbs and it made a huge difference. but now its kinda doggy getting up to 5000 rpms after that she rips and about every 40 miles i got to swap around the plugs because it will start dogging out all around so i will look at the plugs and put the dirtiest one in the cleanest one and then she runs crazy again after 5000 rpms.

Sounds like either you have your carbs not adjusted properly. Or you may have a bad needle.
