Question about Motorcycles
The bike starts and runs ok then cuts out as if it's run out of petrol but it has a full tank
With the little info that you have given I would first say to verify that the carb has an un restricted supply of fuel getting to it, has the proper fuel level in the carb bowl when full. If the unit has a vaccuum operated(automatic) fuel valve ckeck the vaccuum hose for good condition. If it has a PRIme position try running in this position. If all is good the valve may be bad. Good luck.

how many miles are on the bike? those are the symptoms of needing a valve adjustment. if valve clearances ar good , it's in your fuel system.

hey i had one of these myself until it got write off today, not very good when you hit the side of a van at 30mph lol.
I only got around 60 miles before i had 2 fill up just check the fuel system for air leaks coz a pipe came off mine and it just drank fuel also check the fuel to air mixture.

the bike can run on unleaded but it will be rough .
you mwill have loss of power and radical .
what i would suggest is to ask a mechanic about the effects of unleaded petrol to an old engin .
all i know is that the bike will run as i did it to my old BMW and all i had to do is replace some gaskets .
Best of luck .
