I had this problem before. Here a quick glimpse of what could have been the problem:
Fuel is is filled into the carburetor by the float switch. Starting from cold, its just normal that the carburetor is up and ready for a start. As you cruise along, the carburator is filled up with fuel coming from the fuel tank and is regulated by the float switch. Now, if the engine consumes more fuel than the rate of flow by the float switch, then it will drain the carburetor fuel reservoir empty. What could be the cause? You guessed it right... dirty jets or clogged fuel jet on the float switch. Solution: Open up the carb, clean every hole with wire brush. Blow compressed air on the needles and every hole you could see.. Take not of the ball bearings inside make sure there isnt anything loose when blowing with compresssed air.
Assemble the carb back and cruise for 20 minutes.
Other cases: dirty spark plugs, missfiring plugs, or worse case, CDI ..
Let me know if this helps.

check the timing its probally off by some degree. its located on the other side of the bike ( opposite side of the shifter) in the maintance manual it will give you the timing defree needed.
