Sachs Westlake not accelerating after removing displacement val

Hello guys, so I was having displacement valve problems and I tried to fix it by removing the valve assembly and putting a bolt in instead. I plugged it up with Loctite thread lock but now the bike wont accelerate. It idles pretty well (sometimes cuts out still) but I can't get it to accelerate! It lurches occasionally then back to idle even at full throttle. I'm admittedly a little new to all this but I think the bike just might not be getting a proper seal? Either that or I messed something up tightening the clutch cable... I need this to be working by Monday so I can get to work, any advice? Thank you so much!

Forgot to mention, it started and ran fine starting cold and it went a good 5-10 minutes before it died. I took the new bolt out and added more Loctite then the same thing happened. I tried putting a bit more slack in the clutch cable and that didn't help... I'll try starting it cold again in ~30 mins

Condenser could be bad, that valve is called a decompression valve, why did you remove it?

sticking to one post makes life easier, make sure u get a long, a too long, an extra long bolt cuz the seal happens at the tip and not your threads, nor the shoulder, but way down there, no need for red locktight.
