Hi and welcome.

I'm no expert, but a cheap place to start is the air filter. If its a non standard item ( k and n etc ) pull it out and give it a good clean , then pop it back in.

If its a standard item, take it out. If its filthy, buy a new one and drop that back in and see how you go.

Your spark plugs may need changing, if they haven't been done in a few years.

You might need your carbs balancing or tuned. If you've changed the exhaust, you might need to have the bike dynoed.

Hope that helps.......... but like i said-I'm no expert!!
