03 Ninja 250 hesitation

Just got an 03 Ninja 250 that had been stored for awhile last ran last year). The previous owner could not get it to start, despite fresh gas, I cannot remember if he had the carbs cleaned or not. Well after putting more gas in it, it starts and runs, woo hoo, he just did not put enough gas in it. BUT when you crack the throttle quickly in neutral from idle it'll stall. Even when I carefully throttle up it'll hesitate and drop the rpm for a split second, then I can full throttle and it'll rev up. Also when hot a couple times I revved it, it stalled, and would not start till I tried again an hour later. What should I be aiming for, is there ignition timing that I can check?
