01 Idles then dies after a bit

Hello. I’ve just recently gotten my 2nd bike after about 10 years of no riding. Got an 01 Vulcan 800 classic and it has a few problems. First of all it only ran on choke so I took the carbs off and cleaned them twice and got new rebuild kit in there same problem. Then I changed the petcock to an oem one. Still no change. Changed plugs and saw one wasn’t firing so I changed the coils and the ic igniter. Now it will idle but die after a few minutes and will only run on prime now. Also I can’t give it 100 percent throttle without it bogging and dying. i am stumped and don’t know what to do besides take it to a shop. Any help would be great. Thank you in advance.

Is the vacuum line between the carb and the petcock attached and OK? Are the exhaust and air intake completely stock?

Floorboards are wear items. Scooterized, 52 pilot, 170 main and 3.25 turns out. 18/40 sprockets.
