Motobecane 40T - When I give it gas it stalls out.

Can anyone help me on this one. I have a 70-71 Motobecane 40. It was running nicely last night for a couple hours and then all of a sudden when I excellrate it just started to bog down on me and stalls out. Now I can get it started. It sounds like it wants to start but something is holding it back.

I have put a new compressor on it.

The carborator is clean.

The fuel mixture is correct.

What can it be. Can someone help me on this??

Thank you for your time

did you clean the carb after the problem started? It sounds like you may have thrown a clot(of rust) and it clogged up a jet.

Will upjetting cure 'too much air' and 'not enough air'?

No, it will only cure "too much air". But that is also curable by holding the choke in or putting a thumb over the air intake.

Bring the bike to me brotha...we'll clean that gas tank out.
