Basket case hawk help me sort it out

98 hawk
all seems stock except d&d slip on
and dj jet kit
i bought the bike a few weeks ago
not running.
Last tagged in 2011 so I'm sure it's been down a while.
First inspection
harness had been chewed into at the igniter and cdi box. Rat squirrel who knows but was chewed completely into.
Ordered used harness
used ignitor
used cdi
new rr
while waiting checked valves cleaned carbs changed all oil/antifreeze.
Noticed missing tps sensor
installed harness
with original ig/cdi
fired up bike
idles ok front cylinder only runs with choke and rear carb leaking gas thru float valve

today re cleaned carbs
rebuilt petcock as it had a drip tested and working after rebuild.
New iridium plugs
front runs a little better but not consistent rear no longer leaking.
Still wont rev up
vac line connected to petcock correctly
carbs are spotless.
Any ideas as why it won't rev up.
Slides are free diaphragms are good
Kicker
when starting it will rev up for 1/2 seconds then just idles dies of throttle turned any.
Have another set of carbs on there way
with tps sensor
ordered 2x coils
and pulse generator today

I believe TPS must be connected to control ECU or it won't run. I just fired mine up and disconnected the TPS. It idled, but that is all it would do.

Have one on the way to try. But even in factory service manual it says to unhook tps rev to 3500 plug up and speed should increase. One of there ways to test the tps mine won't even get to 2000 rpm
