Check & adjust the fuel / float level,

if the level is on the low side, what may be adequate to feed the engine at idle and lower rpms

may be too lean once you pick up speed.

Also check the fuel petcock, line, inlet valve & seat for any blockage.

 

You suggest a 'bog', so at first I suspect a fuel system issue,

if that checks out ok, you may have an electrical issue.

Check float level today and got same thing seems when bike heats up seems to do it more I am leaning on replacing piston and rings.

A worn piston & rings would not cause your bogging and stalling issue.

 

"as bike heats up tends to do it more"

that can point to an electrical problem or an intermittent air leak

Where might the air leak come from if you don't mind me asking we just replaced the reeds also.

A quick way would be to spray small shots of carb cleaner around the engine as it idles and listen for the rpms to pick up.

Around the reed/intake boot and, behind the magneto at the left side crank seal.

 

As you replaced the reeds, did you by chance use RTV sealant around the mating surfaces?

If so, regular automotive RTV isn't gasoline resistant and will gradually turn to mush, creating possible air leaks.
