Personally I think you are rich for one and maybe the carbs need cleaning. I would drop down to 150 maybe 147.5  mains and 17.5 pilot, sync do a lean drop and sync again.

Sorry I wasn’t very clear on that! They were cleaned after I started having issues again. The bike was running decent however the idle was off so I turned the sink screw which while the vacuum pressures read as not even, it sounded better at idle. Then I went back to even vacuum on the balance and took the exhaust off because I was hearing a weird “tik”. And I was also thinking it might be rich however I when I took the carb apart after putting the the new air pods on it lasted I found that it already had 147.5 Main and 17.5 pilot in it when just the cobra pipes were on it. I’m not sure if that makes a difference or not. Also, I’m 3.5 turns out on my pms which are stock.
