Removing the stock intake system requires rejetting the carbs. Maybe that wasn't done. Someone should know what size jets work best for your altitude. But I would go ahead and pull the carbs and clean them anyway, so you know they are clean.
I am still a staunch opponent of fuel injection on motorcycles, and I wouldn't want it, but it is beginning to make sense for those who do not take the time to maintain their carburetors. 83,000 miles and I have never had any carb problems. Only carb problems I've ever had were on bikes I bought used, and once cleaned up, they never caused any more problems.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
