Kitted e50 is getting slower...What the fuck

If someone maybe has some insight on what could be causing my putt to go slower chime in, I did the basic shit, cleaned the carb like crazy, cleaned petcock, replaced fuel like a filter, new plug, and the shit is still slow, my last guess is maybe my clutch Is warn to shit but that doesn't really make since why it would lose all around power, idk my rant is over, time to go take shit apart and look for problems

slower top end? slower start off? slower all around?

Re: Kitted e50 is getting slower...What the fuck

Mostly slower take off through mid range, once it hits power band it's alright but before if I was wot and let off then opened again it would throw me back a bit.

points or cdi

have you timed it lately?

Re: Kitted e50 is getting slower...What the fuck

I just (yesterday) fixed a friends bike with the same symptoms. He had a bit of rust on the cam of the flywheel (where the points ride on) which slowly wore down the follower, closing the point gap and reducing his timing down to 10*.

Sanded it down and polished it then reset point gap and timing. All better.

My India cdi ( treats type cdi) I ran a few years ago needed the slots dremeled to get more advance .

Full advance stock was like 14 degrees timing. I ran cool but I had no power.

No matter anyway it fried sitting over the winter or when I rode it last in the fall.
