Rincon 650 no power

Hey guys new here, I have a 03 rincon 650. The problem is that the bike acts like it has no power. I can take off after letting it warm up for 5 minutes and when I try to go, it slowly takes off and wines out first so I'll let off the gas for it to change and get back on it and that's all it has. 2nd gear just bogs and tops out at 23mph. That's with eps and auto. It always worked fine then just one day it stopped acting normal. Change fluids regularly, no mud, no water, just trails. Thought it was the carbs so had them redone and didn't change anything. Any ideas? I thought maybe it's the torque converter? But I'm not sure, all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

The first thing I would do is jack up the bike without the motor running and see if all the tires spin freely. I don't know how long it's been since you've checked or changed the spark plug. I'm not a a carburetor guy but I've heard stories of a rubber diaphragm under the cap Of the carburetor being torn and losing power. Also the fuel screen inside your fuel tank and or a fuel filter being clogged. If the clutches feel like they're slipping especially in a higher gear or going uphill a oil pressure check would be a good suggestion.
