Just a little update, I was able to get my bike to a mechanic and as some of you mentioned It had nothing to do with rebuilding the top end and everything to do with the carburetor.
The mechanic told me he suspected the valves and or the carb were the problem when I handed the bike over to him and mentioned the problems I was having. When I picked up the bike he said the valves were within spec but my carb had a plugged jet and was dirty.
Runs great now, had it out yesterday enjoying the 80* weather So. Cal had to offer.
