82' Honda Urban Express wont go over 20mph

I have an 82' Urban Express I have been working on, which was not running when I got it. I have cleaned out the carb and the exhaust, and have managed to get it to fire up and run first kick no problem.

The issue now is that I can't get it to go over 20mph, and it takes a while to even get up to speed. I can't figure out what the problem is. Any help would be appreciated.

Did said ped come from Iowa?

A quick search here indicates that Iowa NU50s should say "Iowa" on the frame under the seat.

Is the belt worn excessively ? Is it 4 stroking excessively ?

Re: 82' Honda Urban Express wont go over 20mph

No, this is not a Iowa model

No 4 stroking. It runs smooth up to 20mph but just cant seem to push past it

Has this ped ever been in Iowa?

Check if your throttle slide is opening up all the way and no brake is dragging.
