Sounds like fuel supply. What happens if you choke it as you increase throttle. You have a mixture problem if that helps. You need a vented gas cap. You could be plugged up at sed bowl inside the tank. Fuel line blocked. Elbow fitting at carb plugged. Remove carb drain plug on bottom of carb you should have a steady flow of fuel when its removed. Make sure have the gas shut off at sed bowl open all the way. Post back if this does not help.

 Re: idles but can't throttle up in reply to L.B,, 10-19-2013 11:50:39  
Drained the tank through the fuel line and first pint or 2 ran through ok, then started really slow down. I could visibly see that the fuel valve out of the tank couldn't keep up. Pulled the valve and the in tank filter looked clean. Blew out the valve w/ compressed air and reinstalled, didn't see anything really come out. Put gas in the tank and it is improved can get to about 3/4 throttle but backfires above that. Do I need more fuel in the tank to give me better pressure? Is there a certain amount of time I need to let it run to "work through it"? Only about a gallon in there right now, valve all the way open. Going for fuel now. Thanks for the advice. May be back for more ;)
