Default weird Intake Leak Issue

My bike runs ok at low/mid but bogs down at anything over 75% throttle (66cc Slant from Zoom Bicycles). Someone suggested the carb cleaner spray test and yes, there was an air leak where the carb connects to the engine. So i removed the carb and used silicone tape to make the seal. Replaced the carb and tightened the clamp. So no more air leak with the carb cleaner test. But now the bike bogs down at anything over 50% throttle!! It almost seemed like the air leak helped. I am using an upgraded air filter from Pirate Bikes, but the problem was around before the upgrade. So what could be causing the bog??
