Bike was running but won't run now

Hi everybody,

'01' vn 750 Did the PU/coil mod, iridium plugs.
It ran great, then it had clutch issues. In the process of trying to figure out the clutch, might have put in some gas of questionable quality(bad gas).
Up till then it would fire up after only a couple cranks and idle all day. Now it only runs as long as the starter is helping it.
I drained the bad gas out of the tank, drained the carb bowls, blow thru the carb vent and gas comes out the jet holes. It's has good blue spark, fires on both cylinders and the pipes get hot.
But it won't tak off on it's own.

Any suggestions would be appreciated
