If you have an air lock or the oil pump is faulty then oil may not be lubricating you engine properly hence its reluctance to rev
Dave has already mentioned a common problem which may also be a factor

Torn or perished rubber airbox-carb or carb- engine

Dirty carb, clogged jets, torn/weak diaphram ( main snd acceerator pump) Float setting/ punctured float

Clogged tank, fuel tap, anti-tilt valve

Silencer rusted out internally

Poor electrical connections? NB Earthing point behind the horn

Spark plug, HT lead

Valve timing /worn valves

Some things to look at

Welcome to the forum Stephen,

Did you lay the bike on its right hand side when doing your sprag job?

Is your air box now full of oil?

Also check the points made by Dave and Eric above!

Good luck
