Bogging Under Load

This weekend my bike started bogging while under a load. If I roll the throttle on hard, it bucks like crazy. When it reaches speed it smooths out.

This came on all of a sudden. It was working fine in the morning and developed a problem when I went for an afternoon ride. I thought it might be gas but I drained the fuel from the carb and it was clean. I didn't see any problems with vacuum lines. I opened the air cleaners and all was fine. I pulled a plug and it looked fine.

This may be a stupid question, but can a loose cam chain do this? It has the original ACCT on it and it has been making noise, but nothing shocking. I was going to do the MCCT conversion in the winter.

It's killing me not to be able to ride to work, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
