getting there slowlllly

okay here we go. I have in the last couple of weeks been working on my 95. 750 Have repaired ignition switch new plugs and the 2 rear wires cleaned petcock replaced fuel line and vacuum lines. disassembled carb and cleaned the jets the needles and all the tubes. finally got it back on. Now bike sounds much better on idle exhaust gas pressure fairly equal. tried to ride and at 3ooo to 4000 rpms feel a stutter or hesitation in 1st or 2nd gear.
we set the air screws at 2 1/2 turns. any other adjustments I should try
BTW thanks for all the help so far

Did you balance the carbs after cleaning and reinstalling them? Out of balance could be what is still aliening it. Also check the breather line that goes in the right air filter.

The other day I washed my bike at the car wash. I washed up where the rear coil is and I lost the rear spark to the rear. What I am getting at here is that 4,000 rpm was about all I could get out of it with one cylinder working on it own. I had corrosion on one of the coil connections.
