Motobecane won’t rev up

I have a motobecane with the gurtner AR2 style carb and I cannot get it to rev up. It will idle and start just fine but when I go to wide open throttle it seems like it just won’t get on the pipe and go. The carb has been cleaned 5 times and I’m running out of ideas.

Re: Motobecane won’t rev up

while running try spraying some premix w the throttle wide open, does it rev up?

Could be the variator? I had one like that. Would sit and idle fine but when you went to go it would not rev out.

Have you tried looking through the hole where the air filter goes to see if the slide is opening all the way?
