Puch Magnum problems

I have a 1980 Puch Magnum II. I can get it started up, and it will run up to full speed on the kickstand, but when I get on it to ride it, it will sputter and die.

It was getting up to full speed before sputtering and dying, but I took the carb apart and cleaned it, and after that it won't even get up to speed.

It doesn't seem to be carb, since I cleaned it out, and the carb is fairly new.

I know the fuel lines are not plugged because I can see gas in the fuel filter.

Could the fuel tank be clogged, which might create a lack of pressure in the fuel line?

Could it be the clutch, since I can get it running fine on the kickstand, but not when I sit on it?
