Sound like you might want to clean out the carb. You can take them apart pretty easy. Also, check to see if your fuel filter might be clogged? Will the problem also occur if you switch over to the Res. fuel line?

Does it have a rev limiter? I've heard that the rev limiter on those can poop out and not allow the engine to rev much past idle. My dad had that problem a couple years ago on one of his old WR500s.

I think its just a wire that goes into the head that senses cylinder head temp. If the head gets too hot, it cuts the revs.
