Look at the right air filter housing, also known on this forum as the "ears" (plastic chrome piece with false louvers on the outside). If the ears have not been removed ("earshave"), there should be a rubber hose going into the housing. Trace it back to the carburetor and make sure it is connected to the carb and isn't cracked/split/etc. If it is, replace it. Then pull the hose out of the filter housing, cut the end at a 45 degree angle and shove it back in.
If this hose bottoms out against the housing, falls out, or cracks, the bike will not run well, especially at speed. It needs to be protected from wind.
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
