NSR125RK Won't rev over 5 thou

Hi, I have a 1994 NSR125RK which I've just fitted a replacement engine. It starts and idles easily but when I rev it, it feels a bit flat and will not rev over 5000 rpm. I have stripped and checked the carb, seems ok, and when I turn on the ignition the exhaust valve moves. I hope you have some suggestions. Thanks

82 GPZ tachometer replacement

My tachometer for my gpz is done for and I am looking for a replacement. There are so many different tach ratios out there that I want to make sure I get the correct one (1:2, 1:4, 1:5, 1:7, or 1:9)  Does anyone know what tach ratio I would look for?  I was told that most kawasaki use a 1:5 but I wanted to see if anyone else has ran into the same issue. Thanks in advance for your help!
