Little less then a week ago I tried to fix a poogs syndrome, I removed the tank and checked the pet cock reassembled it and noticed a piece of the front carb wasn't plugged what I thought was not deep enough in the engine block, I removed one of the air intakes and put the carb in deeper. After taking it for a test spin I noticed it backfired like crazy around 5k rpm its so bad that the bike shocks with shots of power/no power when it does that (its mostly around 5k rpm) to fix this I just switched back to 4th gear and let it sit at 6k+ rpm until today where it did it even when driving slowly, the shocking is so bad you can't drive nicely when I pulled over I noticed the idle made jumps from 1k to 3k to below 500rpm for a while almost as if there isn't a good combusting. Shortly after it hit 0rpm and the engine shut down. Luckily I was at work and waited till I was done to see if it still had the problem. It didn't for about 5-10 min when I went off the highway to check it out, same problem. I waited a couple of minutes and drove home. Does any of you have any idea what this could be? Could it be clogged carb?
Edit: sorry for the crappy writing. I did this on my mobile phone
