Angry 1980 xl 185 ignition problem

Hello, I have a 1980 xl 185s and I just put a new clutch in and a new carburetor. After I got it together it started upand I drove it about a quarter mile and started bogging down and spitting and sputtering. I got it home and put a new plug in and cleaned the coil grounds and it still is doing the same thing. It has spark and it starts right up and kind of idles but when I give it gas it just pops and misses and smokes, but stays running.

UPDATE: I got it figured out, somehow my new carb got plugged up. I cleaned it and now she’s running like a Honda again
