Default 91 rt180 stuttering

hey, i just bought a 91 rt180 the other day for $200, it runs great except for 1 thing. when i first get on the throttle it stutters alot but when i give it more gas it stops and takes off like a bat out of hell, any ideas? i cleaned the carb, put a new plug in, changed the gear oil, and i checked the reeds and they looked good (they are metal), i mix it at 32:1 (oil injection is blocked off) and the air mixture screw i have 1 and a half turns out. also when it idles it makes a clinking sound in the engine but when revved up and riding it sounds normal idk if thats a problem or not. thanks for any help!!

I've got the exact same bike as yours; year and everything. I paid $150 for mine--yours must be $50 better condition If I may add something-post a pic of the plug so we can see it. It sounds very much to me like the carb is out of adjustment. My CT 125 did a lot of the same sounding stuff as your RT does, and my carb was just not set right. Fiddle around with it, and get back to us

Well, man? What's the plug like? I just noticed that you said it makes a clinking sound at low RPMs. That's normal for RT 180s. Mine does it, and all of them I've heard on YouTube sound like that.
