Three things come to mind:

Cables installed too tight. There should be 1/8" slack at the handlebars before the mechanism moves on the carbs.

Carb bodies were separated and not properly aligned when reassembled.

Cable holding bracket on the carb has shifted. Back off the mounting screws and retighten.
