Yes scrap, that's a dual carb bike.
Idle jet's (pilot) are difficult to clean, correctly and efficiently. Check them again.
Did you remove/clean the slide's? If so, were you careful to not pinch the diaphragm's?
Yes, Air filter is important on this bike, .... for correct operation, so it's a quick response to questions on running conditions.
Opening throttle cause vacuum to open slide's, not just the cable going to the "butterfly". Slide opening (moving up) raises needle from Main Jet, allowing fuel into "airstream" of intake system.
Pilot jets allow fuel into "stream" differently, hence PART of your problem.
"Choke" (enricher) is still yet, totally different. THIS part on your carbs is the only one that's OK, probably.
