Its very possible that your wot performance was tuned on the dyno with the jets rather than the pvcr's. A LOT of people do that and it is the WRONG way to tune WOT. You may need to step down a handful of jet sizes and open up your pvcr to get your cruise tuned right.

For idle you can adjust the idle feed and bleeds to get an acceptable idle and off idle transition.

Tuning a carb for peak power has very little to do with tuning a carb for peak performance. Peak power is easy, peak performance is much much harder.
