Its a riding day, so the real WR responses with your bike should be back at the keyboard tonight. Just some basics, before you spend a dime. Verify your valve clearances, make sure your carb is clean, properly mounted and cables are operating as they should. I would consider the checking the flywheel key to make sure it's not been sheared. Start with a properly gapped spark plug. Now you should be able to trouble shoot.
If you can wait a day or so, a helpful 426 rider can probably solve this quicker.

The backfiring really makes me suspicious of this. If it is backfiring through the carb, it means the intake valves are still open at the instant of ignition. That is a function of timing. And yours was just changed prior to the problem...
Let us know what you see under that valve cover...

shop went the wrong way on the timing(retarded it) and put the carb slide in backwards
And I bet they only charged you $65.00 an hour to do it.
Waddya complaining about?
hope you get it fixed!
