Fire it up with the air filter off.Look at the carb and see if its open.Is it cutting off when you brake?

Or just cutting off without you doing anything?Mine did that today,so I had to richen the idle screw
just about an 1/8 of a turn in.

yeah, check your idle setting, then if that doesnt work tune the other needles. its definately a needle adjustment problem.
