Put a compression tester on your bike and see how many PSI you are building. Less than 90psi means low compression, and if your rings are shot, replace your top end with a 65cc Metrakit, and bore out your intake to match your 15mm carb, toss on a bullet or boss exhaust, and you will be cooking easily to a solid 40mph, with much more potential. If you have decent compression, your bike is running that slowly because of another reason, like bad points, condenser, incorrect timing, bad jetting, clogged exhaust or bad seals. Fix those first, and I promise you it will be much better later on!
