The mixture might be too lean,check the fuel level in the carburettors. While you're at it clean them all thoroughly.

    Yes you could, they are all pretty much the same, just be sure they are certified to work on a 2-stroke engine (they will clean better and burn easier if they are). Super Tech brand sold at WalMart is cheap and very good.

Bogs down at 50 mph or over

this is an air intake problem check the air filter is clean also check air filter is the same model as original as some air filters require a carb retune to function properly
