2001 XL800 Carb Issues

Hello, I purchased a 2001 XL 800 with a blown motor and had the entire engine rebuilt professionally and put brand new power valves (with clips) on it. I rebuilt the carbs with a geniune Mukini carb rebuild kit but I can't seem to get the carbs right? I took the carbs back off and checked everything over but still no luck. I have to quickly, repetatively slam on the throttle several times and then it will goup to about 46 MPH but it won't just ease into the throttle and get it to go full speed? If I gradually press the throttle to full speed, I get like 25 MPH with low RPM's. Jet pump is fine. It just wants to bog down. I checked the pop-off and everything that I could think of on the carbs. Does anyone on here rebuild these carbs? Thanks in advance!
