starting to lose power?

I was riding today and my 'ped is having trouble going over 20 for some reason all of a sudden. It also bogs down a liitle bit then goes back up. Any ideas??

Re: starting to lose power?

also it goes up to 26 no matter how heavy you are riding it and that was before the problem stated above. Could it be compression? bad piston rings? clogged exhaust? It starts up no problem at all and once it warms up it idles really good although really high on run. what could my issues be?

clogged main jet possibly. clean the carb.

Re: starting to lose power?

ive had the same issue, in my case it was lack of gas to the carb because my petcock was clogged.. id say take a look to your fuel supply, then exhaust.. check the simple things first

Re: starting to lose power?

The carb was cleaned completely and soaked in carb cleaner as well
