Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
Initially, have you checked:

  • • burn color of spark plug tips;
  • • for air or vacuum leak;
  • • condition of the carbs;
  • • air box and filter;
  • • carb to intake coupling block;
  • • depending on the carbs, choke;
  • • compression.
