Can't get above 25 mph

Need help guys and gals

I cleaned my clutch and now machine won't go above 25 mph with it floored.

Took it back apart and clutch is working as it's supposed to

It's like the brakes are locked but I can roll it around with one hand.

Only two things I can think of, the one way bearing is screwed up or I've read where someone put the clutch back together and tighten down the nut, turned out the belt was actually too low between the plates keeping it from being tighten all the way. Then when you drive the belt never moves up and down right.

Are you able to get your rpms up or is it bogging down the engine?

bogging engine

I've got the clutch cover off now and the belt is traveling as it's supposed to.

One way bearing was fine prior to cleaning clutch

Yes, I ran it around the block this spring getting things cleaned up and I didn't have to give it much throttle to get it going but in town never got up to any full runs.

But I've got it floored now and only getting to 25

Alright just went for a spin and I managed to get to 40 but it was struggling to get there.

It act like it's starving for air, either in or or but I took the air cover off and no change, pulled the spark arrestor and no change

I get an occasional backfire also

I just changed the oil as well but even if it was the wrong oil it shouldn't cause this.

Could plugs cause this? Only 900 miles on machine but don't know how long that one spark plug boot was broken and still haven't gotten to the rear one.

Could they have hidden that one a little more????
