Make sure you don't have any air leaks between the carb and the motor and it wouldn't hurt to disassemble and clean the carb if you haven't done that lately. Since you had it apart it wouldn't hurt to double check the timing. I doubt it's a valve clearance problem.

Make sure you dont have a rag in the airbox, or a pinched hose somewhere.

What exactly did you take apart ?
What did you do putting it back together ?
