Default Re: Engine Running Slow

May not be broke in yet. when you open the throttle all the way is the carbs throttle slide going all the way open? You can check it by taking off the carb or even by taking off the airfilter and looking at the slide.
You didn't say if your engine is winding out or not and what size rear sprocket. The bigger the rear sprocket the slower it will go wide open but it will be able to climb hills. I run a 44 tooth rear on 2 of my bike and hit around 30 and one bike has a 36 tooth and will hit 40 which I think is too fast on a bicycle seeing how the bearing are made on bicycles wheels
