carbs have been stripped, cleaned and rebuilt with new gaskets and jets.
after a lot of work i am know 99% convinced it is an electrical not fuel problem possibly a dodgy connector or something more serious(££££'s) fingers crossed its the first.

Saw a similar problem with the same engine which eventually deteriorated to 2 cylinders only running. It proved to be one of the trigger leads from the CDI box to the coils had corroded down its copper core into the sealed CDI box. An expensive fix and secondhand ones are scarce so I hope it's not your issue but it produced a lot of symptoms consistent with fuel starvation and always had a great spark when static/low speed tested.

Run the engine with a flat out with a stobe light on each cylinder you will soon see what spark is breaking down however 1999 was the beginning of the prime start engines. Is this one? If it is, have you checked the small diaphram in the middle carb that will make you engine run richer than it should if its bust.
