Check the fuel pipes make sure there is no blockages, take the carb off and clean with carb cleaner and put the mixture back to the original

SOURCE: Engine dies after quad is warmed up (10-15 minutes)

Just a hunch, had this happen to a bike of mine years ago, could be the piston rings are gettting ready to go(wore down). What happens is when the quad is cold the rings expand tight into the cylinder walls allowing it to get full compression and run ok. When it heats up they shrink allowing the slightest amount of give which in turn will cause you problems similar to what your describing.

My gilera st200 hard to start in the morning..recently just change spark plug and battery..still the same..any idea what is the problem

Hi, Fazer and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.*
8. Intake air leak.
9. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.*
10. Enricher valve inoperative.*
11. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
12. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
13. Faulty ignition coil.
14. Valves sticking.
* Carbureted models.

I have a MAC 3516. I runs starts fine and runs for a few minutes at high speed (have made a few cuts), but sputters and dies. It will start again, but when I try to increase speed it dies. I have...

Try checking the fuel filter in the tank for plugging. Also, check the condition of all of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. You won't be able to adjust the jet settings if the screw heads are 'D' shaped--only authorized service dealers have the necessary special screwdriver. Try removing, then replacing the fuel cap when it quits--if the vent is plugged, it will starve the carburetor after running a while. If it works well at first, then it is not likely that the jets are mis-adjusted. Hope this helps!

Jeep starts sluggish and then wants to die

It is most likely from that actually. You may need to adjust the air / fuel mixture after modding the intake. Sounds like its getting too much air.

Car starts runs for ten or fifteen minutes then just dies

Check fuel pressure when it dies? Or remove air intake hose at throttle body inlet, open throttle slightly,(with key off) and spray wd-40 inside throttle body for a second or 2, then try to start. If it starts for a second or 2 then quits, you have a fuel delivery problem, such as bad fuel pump or plugged fuel filter.

1983 Mazda RX7 lacks power rough or no idle

Sounds like carb idle air or fuel jets are clogged.. Test pressure with a gauge to be sure. Float level and drop needs to be exact.. Operation of the whole carb relies on this. Probably why you are not getting any change in your air/fuel adjustments.

Runs 5 minutes then dies. Won't start until engine is cold.

Try the WD-40 spray in intake of throttle body with air intake hose off, to see if it will kick at all, even for a second or 2. We need to confirm whether your losing fuel or spark when it dies. Ignition & fuel, can cause similar symptoms in this case.
