Its been shown on A dyno that the carb switch makes no noticeable difference connected or disconnected, and on bikes where a different carb is fitted it’s not used at all with no obvious effect on performance.

My best guess at this stage is some weird scenario where your fuel hose is getting crimped at high speed restricting fuel delivery. That still sounds far fetched to me though.
