Misses as in not firing? Or sputters as in not getting fuel?

Loose plug wires?
Or loose signal wires to coils?
Crud in carb?

I`m just guessing at possibilities.

Does it do it when you are countersteering around a right hand curve at higher speeds, or is it when you are turning right, like at a stop sign? Does it do it when you are sitting still on the bike and lean it to the right? Does it do it when you are sitting still and turn your handlebars to the right?
Trying to help narrow it down to carbs or wiring...

Check your vaccum hose from the carbs T fitting to the right side airbox, I bet its flapping in the wind.

Try turning the bars hard to the left and right while bike in sitting and idling. See if it misses. If it misses your ignition switch wiring may be pulling out a bit.
