I don't know why it is not running right (sounds like a carb problem to me as well) but it sounds like you did the mod without removing the cover first. If so you now have pieces of metal floating around inside your engine getting into everything. I think the mod is a good idea, but you need to pull the engine and remove the stator cover, and get it away from the bike before doing any cutting or grinding on it. Rule number one on doing any engine work is to make absolutely sure no foreign material gets inside the engine. I go to extremes on this.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
