Low top end power on 1982 Honda urban express

I was given a 1982 Honda urban express nu 50 and i got it running after cleaning the carberator then I rode it for a wile and it was slow found out the belt was shredded so i got a new one that fixed that problem but now it will go fine putting around the yard but when I open it up on the road its very boggy and wont get wound up. I have cleaned that carberator 4 or 5 times now in my ultrasonic cleaner,carb cleaner,and compressed air still aint right I dont know what to do next ANY suggestions greatly appreciated.

similar thing happened to me. I cleaned the carb and it ran worse. Cleaning the carb resulted in clean jets which delivered too much gas and made it run worse. Try a slightly smaller main jet.

What are the numbers on the jets?

Captain Janeway /

On a stock bike 78 or 85. For some odd reason there were sometimes different.

Have you changed that sponge filters? If not so get a new one. Personally I use oiled panty hose. Try the sponge first if you're all stock. $5.

Whatever came stock with the bike.

You think that maybe , during the past 36 years , that the jets just might have been replaced ?

That's a testament to : They just don't make 'em like they use to . ;)
