Honda XR full throttle problem

When I apply full throttle on my XR125 my bike bogs down and seems to lose power and drive and won't accelerate properly at all. This happens in all gears I think and means I can hardly get the bike above 40 mph at the moment, would anyone be able to suggest what's going wrong here? Thanks a lot.

i know nothing about mechanics

but for what its worth my old XJ600 Divvy did this just before i scrapped it , i noticed that my fuel cap seal had broken and this was causing water to enter the tank in turn taking rust with it when it got sucked through fuel pump in turn damaging the filter which then messed up the carbs and finally made me kill my clutch and gears getting it home ... my advice check your fuel tank from experience mate !

problem Fixed?

Did you solve your throttle problem? I have the same problem with my honda cm 125 custom at the moment and this is the closest subject I can find that sounds like the problem my bikes having.. So were you successful in fixing your XR125 and what did you do? 

Thanks :wacko::hmmm::biggrin::upset:
