Tell it to me straight doc...

Do I poogs? Just got home from a short ride to the girlfriends. Bike started bucking a little. Wouldn't go faster then 70mph or higher then 5000 rpms. Just jetted the carbs the other day. Rode for about 30 miles after I got her back together with no issues. Rode to work this morning with no issues. Now this. Also back fired quite a bit. Any ideas?

I had to mount the second crank case breather and put duck tape around the leading half of the filter, and that worked like a charm. Looked nice too.
