Welcome.

How does it run off idle? Have you checked that it is running on all cylinders? (headers heating up pretty equally)

Tight valves can choke an engine out at low rpms, which is usually precluded by it being hard to start because it can’t get enough air into the cylinder.

How many miles on the bike? Ever had a valve adjustment? Is it hard to start? What color was the smoke? Is the bike flashed or stock ecu and dyno tune? What kind of riding have you been doing/ any riding that was extremely hard on the engine (drag racing, or road racing)?

Well light white is lean or your burning coolant. Check your radiator to make sure you still have coolant. What did the plugs look like when they got changed?

you may also have to do a fur pressure test to make sure your fuel pumps not going dead.

The plugs looked burnt and two had some what appears to be gas when I whipped them off on clean rag no stain just wet will check the fluid in reservoir but has not ran hot any

Burnt as in covered with black or brown? Was there any white? Wet plugs as in black suit and wet or oily black?

Don't just check the over flow, you need to open the radiator cap and if needed add fluid to see how much might be missing.

My suspicion at this point is you either have tight valves not allowing enough air into the cylinder for the fuel to atomize and burn properly causing a fowled/wet plug or you have significant ring wear from hard miles. The easiest way to eliminate ring wear (sort of) is to put the crank case hose off the air box and see if there is white smoke coming from it which indicates blow by, or the more intensive procedures of a compression/leak down test.
