1993 XV535 FOR FIX & SALE

Just got my bike back from a fine mechanic but I can't be running at full power -I can't get it past 60 mph! My 1993 carburation I understand is a little different -what was the word used "induction"? Is one or both floats stuck -not letting in the air & so the fuel when it gets into the upper speed?
I'm also in need of a left mirror & I'd be interested in selling the bike...BEFORE I get too attached ;)

Vuka,
It would help if you indicated where the bike is located for those who may be interested.

I had a 500 Kaw that acted similar after I purchased it. After checking everything I thought possible a mech said the cam chain was a link or two off. reset it properly and it ran like a raped Ape after that.
