What did I do wrong???

I got my new top right fairing in today and decided while I had the fairings off I'd change some instrument panel lights out. I found 3 and replaced them in which they work great.

But I took the rubber peice off below the instrument gauge that pads it from the windscreen(Which broke also). Which I found out later can only be put back on by taking the gauge cluster cover off. So I did it and disconnected everything to take the gauges off and then put the new lights in. I plugged the two plugs back in the same spot and bolted the gauge cluster down. Then I proceded to put the rest of the fairings back on and did so. All the gauges appear to be working accurately.

I take it out for a ride and it acts up at 6k RPMs like it did before. Or basically it had no ass at that speed. It died or barely ran. Below 6k it did okay and above it it did okay. Except this time it doesn't stall out when I let off the gas and I have a new battery on top of the carbs just being cleaned out.

I'm wondering what could be causing this.

I did add a new "Silverstar" headlight(Non HID) that works awesome. I got the same wattage as the other one but am curious if this did it.

All cylinders are firing. I touched each exhaust after I let it cool down and it got hot quick on all 4s as soon as I started it up.

Which I figured it'd happen with me having no work tommorow and the weather going to be nice for the weekend. It works when miserable and cold but not when I want it to work.

about 5 minutes after posting this and wallowing in self-hatred and contemplating wether I should keep the bike or not. I figured it out.

If you look at the front of an F3 you see the nostral looking part at the bottom of the light. And inside those nostrals to the farthest from center you see two trumpet looking metal peices that hold a hose. I forgot to attach those. So I put them back together and the bike runs like a champ.

I can't believe those made that huge of a difference.

Vaccuum lines? Is that what the hoses are?

pickle sounds like it from what he is saying... yhou be surprised how much little things like that can make you car/bike run.. bike was sucking in too much air and at the higher RPM you bike is making zero vacuum and it compensates for the air coming so it can run may not have alot of power but can run

Okay. I'm not exactly sure how this stuff works but have heard some explenations.
Here is a picture of the "Ram Air" type system that feeds the carbs(Remember it's not EFI).

If you look at 8 and 10 you'll see where the hose connects to the Ram Air induction. That is part of this junk...


This somehow regulates air flow. If you are below 12mph the air flows one way. And aboe 12mph it releases air into the carbs to from what I understand "Stabalize" the float bowls. Or give equal pressure I'm not exactly sure though.

And in the front of the bike you have two inlets that run back into that mess of tubes and allows air to flow through there.
