With a 30+ year old bike, I can't put much faith in a "pre-jetted" carb, given that compression weakens with wear, and he has no idea what your environmental operating conditions are.

If you're certain that the rest of your motor is tight, aka you've done a comp/leakdown test and your reeds/exh are all good, than that leaves carb tuning. In which case, buy some jets and do the thing.
