88 gsxr back from the dead... mostly

I was recently given an 88 gsxr that was sitting garaged for years. It only has 15000 miles on it!!! I'm handy with tools, but not a mechanic. I've got it back on the road as of today, but I'm having some issues.

When I try to throttle past 7000 rpm it stutters and won't accelerate. Any advice?

It has a 4 into 1 with a kerker, k&n air filter, and has been jetted. I killed the carbs apart several times before I got it running, all n new gaskets and needle valve.

Lack of flow on the fuel tap. The original ones are marginal at best, age does them no favours......
