You're not running without a muffler, are you? Your engine won't last long without some back pressure and it doesn't do the motorized bicycle hobby any good either.
If you have to cover the air inlet side of the carburetor with your hand there's a good bet youi have an air (vacuum) leak somewhere. The air filter shouldn't cause that much restriction in air flow.
