1997 Suzuki GS 500 carb trouble

Ive just done a overhall of the carbs didnt find much crud I put them back together as I thought but i put the bottom bowls on the wrong carb ooooooops lol so after a lot of swearing I got them together again put em on the bike but now its running abit rich the plugs are black sooty it will idel for a while but soon clogs up so i clean them up & she runs fine when I take it out on the road its fine and pulls as she should but when i come to a junction it cuts out and wont start again what have i done and how can i rectify this problem........ Would squirting carb cleaner in it do any good?
Cheers John
