Carb has been cleaned thourghly twice. Thanks.

I don't want to sound like I'm insulting your intellect here. But did you use something like oxy/acetylene tip cleaners to clean the jets? I had to go to the pharmacy and get asked a few weird questions to get a syringe to clean the pilot jet.

Valve timing? I needed to buy a new cylinder head and piston for the same bike because a valve came apart while she was running... look through the exhausted holes and see if anything looks fishy
