Your bike may be jetted too lean. A common problem in these days of overzealous EPA regulations. You can tell if when you've cranked your throttle wide open and it splutters, if you back off on the throttle about 1/8 to 1/4 turn, it clears up. This is indicating that it is jetted too lean. When you close the throttle slightly, the fuel is being metered by the main jet and by backing off on the throttle a bit, you're cutting back on the air, thereby bringing the mixture closer to what the engine needs. Try rejetting the carb, Go up one or two sizes on the main jet, one step at the time.
Now, it could be too rich as well. If it splutters and blows black smoke out the exhaust, it either jetted too rich or the float level in the carb is set wrong.
Take care of the simple stuff first before rejetting the carb. Make sure your spark plugs are the correct ones and they are not fouled from overusage of the choke or enricher. If you allow the bike to "warm up" with the enricher on, plug fouling is common with this practice. I get the bike started and as soon as it will run without the enricher or choke on, I turn it off and keep the bike running with the throttle. Don't foul as many plugs that way.

Fuel supply running out. Usually clogged filter. that allows enough gas through to run at lower rpms but not at high demand. Could be filter in tank, there is a mesh screen on the inlet to the fuel petcock. You would have to have some serious issues with rust in the tank or a batch of extremely bad gas for this to happen. I would look to see if you have an inline filter, I have no knowledge of that particular bike.
