Sounds like it may be low on compression, does it feel like it when pulling it over? It should have a good bounce when rocked against compression. If a two cycle has blow-by it kills the next intake stroke by filling the crankcase with exhaust.

My thoughts as well . Stuart Turners realy need good compression. When the engine was overhauled was note taken of the ring gap? Also the crankcase seals? I substitute synthetic seals to replace the original S/T ones.
If new rings were fitted it certainly helps to remove the cylinder glaze.....with a hone.
