I have search all over about these carbs... I have a slide that is burnt and stuck only in one of the carburetors I'm curious what would cause this before I replace them and ruin another carb? would it be Blow by from the cylinder? Also have water mixing in the oil and I am aware of the water pump seals but are there any other suggestions on what could cause this.? And would the thin water / oil be the reason for Blow by

Do you have oil in the water? Being spring my first guess would be a frost plug if the bike was stored in an unheated garage last winter. Either way I wouldn't run it until it is sorted out. Head gasket, pooched piston, etc. Only way I can see it would burn is backfire from that cylinder. To start you could do a compression test and assess pistons and rings.
