Sounds like you could be flooding the cyl or your having a miss fire.
I remember someone here having unplugged the coil & got the wires crossed
(the red & green) But can't remember what problem it made & fixed.

|clock152||also... in line filter?.. that was an add on!...still thinking its a vacume line though and marbeling will help as well.... power sucking emitions blow!....but also.. you said you added seafoam...well you could be gettign thru the "carbs butt ugly dirty" phase too...sucking a bit of ugly and burning it as you go... I know I seafoamed the crap out of mine when I got it... it smoked, sputtered, bitched, called me dirty names.. and finaly cleaned itself out and ran like new after about a tnak full...just saying... she is a quirky chick and you got to rub her right sometimes.|

|flitecontrol||Those inline filters may have been on there to keep crud in the tank from reaching carbs.|

You know, this may seem strange, but I bought a project bike a couple of years ago that behaved somewhat similarly to what you've described in previous threads (surge-and-die behavior or just crazy-scary surging) and the problem was that the surge tank itself had a small crack in it. I was unable to find it until I was pulling the engine and doing some other things to the bike, but it turned out to be a hairline crack along a seam.
Failing that, double-check where your rear carb boot goes into the tank - there might be a leak there, or a crack in that boot (or in the tank where the boot gets inserted).
