previous owner had ductape and foam pad for the seat he also cut the hell out the rear piece so there wasnt enough to salvage so i got a old t shirt for now and pop riveted it on for now since im broke and its going to b a stunt bike practicing on it almost daily, also cleaned up the harness so its not hanging how it was in previous pic but everything is still connected, what you guys think?

I actually think the fairing with the small headlights looks pretty sweet. A shiny new paint job and you will have something different.

Bypass the pump, but my guess is the carbs need stripping and cleaning.
What do you mean it "keeps clicking"? As soon as you turn the key on?
Is the battery charged up?

I think you can buy aftermarket kits but they probably just need cleaning.
Strip out all the jets, chokes, float valves and mixture screws and clean everything with carb cleaner and compressed air, making sure that carb cleaner flows through all of the orifices as it should.
Shouldn't need any adjustments.
Hook up a fuel supply before installing them and make sure they don't leak when held as they would be positioned on the engine. Then tilt them each way until they overflow and confirm that they stop overflowing when you right them again.
No idea about the relay, is the battery charged?

i have a petcock that has a vacuum line hook up where do i hook that up?

Then you shouldn't have a pump.
Is the vacuum line connected to the engine or carbs?

also the throttle has no return what so ever it feels like it has cruise control ive had dirtbikes before and they always wanna snap back if i let off the gas, is this normal on a street bike? like i can literally take my hand off the throttle at any speed even freeway speed and it just kinda stays where its at it

The pump will prevent it from gravity feeding the carbs.
If you keep the pump then you can usually swap the spring to the other side of the vacuum diaphram so it stays open, and clamp off the vacuum line.
If you want to use the vacuum diaphram then you need to connect the vacuum hose to a vacuum port on the intake manifolds, usually one of the synchronisation ports.
