Bought this WR over the winter and have just started to try and get it going for the Spring.

First ride of Spring, WR was running horribly...bogging down, max speed of about 5 mph.

I have replaced the plugs and changed the fuel filter and it runs OK at low speeds. It caps out at 5000 RPM and will only do about 30 mph.

I checked the compression and I am getting consistent readings in all cylinders.

Any suggestions before I take it to the pros?

Last night I took it back out and it is performing the same with one new thing I noticed. When running below 5000 RPMs the acceleration is sluggish, but if go WOT from an idle it will accelerate quickly to about 7000 RPMs for a second or two and then drops back down to the 5000 RPM max. Still sound like carbs?
