Man I hate to say it but I swapped my carb out for a PC20 right away. I think the stock jet in your carb shoulda been a 68 main so you wanna keep it close to that. When you have the bike on the center stand and revving the motor it shouldnt bog when you crack the throttle. The air/fuel screw shouldn't be out more than 1 or 2 full turns. Test and tune is only solid way. Find a street and remember how fast it took you to go from A to B. Repeat with different jets. weight and tucking will also make a difference.

04yellowruckus in LA has been running his 50cc with a stock carb. He's hella cool so you might wanna message him and ask him for some tips. I hope that helps a little.
