throttle is at the idle position i rebuilt the carbs and they appear to be synced the engine floods sometime i fixed that but the engine goes straight to redline after starting and stays there i tried to adjust both the idle and other screws i believe its the air mixture screw i messed with both no diffidence what could be causing this?

Slides should be as low as possible in the carb. I don't think the air mixture screw can make an engine redline. I'd back out the idle screws to see if that lowers the idle. Could also be a vacuum leak in between the cars and cylinder. I've also had an issue where the throttle cable was not routed correctly which resulted in the slides raising and thus causing a false high idle depending on which way the handlebars were turned.

The slides reversed and the left one is in the right car and vice versa. The cut away should face the intake (air filter) side
Probably this, but air leak could be a possibility too, as could pinched throttle cable.
