I had exactly the same issue on my '65 Tiger 500. I tore the carbs apart, rejetted and tried every combination. Checked the valves, sat online reading threads and got nowhere. Took the tank off to look everything over and found a coil wire crimp connection slightly loose. Crimped it down and never had an issue again. It never, I repeat never broke up until I hit 3k. Weird but true. The vibration would just get nasty enough to shake the connection. Idle was perfect. Good luck. I would just take a deep breath and go over everything (especially connections) and recrimp or even redo anything remotely sketchy,
good luck.
