Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,
Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...
Initially, the described symptom almost always point to; a) intake air leak and/or b) fuel delivery issue.
Please ensure that air entry is only through the designated slot of the air box and that there is sufficient fuel inside the carb bowl.
Please post back results / observations of the above once checked.
