did you clean the pilot jet and the main jet, pilot is small jet in hole in center of carb, has vry small hole in it that gets [plugged , almost need a real small wire to get it clean then carb cleaner and compressed air.

If it's a CV carb the diaphram could be bad. The part that controls the carb from off idle upwards.

I agree. Problem will be the pilot jet plugged or float needle worn.
Are you sure it ran fine before? If it wasn't running fine before look at the camshaft. Is the airbox fully assembled and no air leaks. Clean air filter?

Is the slide in the right way? Is it moving as you throttle up? I still think its the diaphram. While its running try and lift the slide a little with a screw driver.
