First, make sure you have a manual, you can get one from Pilothawk. Secondly, its probably none of those problems. I would guess a carb adjustment on the air screw. Make sure also to clean out your carb as well.

First I would check you dont have a fuel problem: cloged lines, bad pump ect. Then I would check your intake manifold for cracks. The smallest cracks could lead to bogging. A good way to test the fuel pump/lines are to remove it all and just gravity feed your engine with a syringe and if it runs fine then you know its something fuel related. I would also perform a compression test to make sure your piston/rings are fine as well. Let me know the results.
