Question about Motorcycles
You may check the manifold between the carburetor and cylinder head for leaks. You could be losing the vacuum it takes to run properly at extended load and rpms.

It sounds like you are not getting enough gas. I think it's the diaphragm, When you take it off of the choke diaphragm controls the gas flow, apparently yours is just shutting down. It's very inexpensive, and very easy to replace. Good Luck :)

Your carb is running either extremely lean or extremely rich. Either you have a serious vacuum leak or excess fuel is finding it's way into the carb. If the bike has been sitting for a long period of time (more than about 3 months), you're jets in the carb may be clogged.
You remove the carb, disassemble it, and clean everything inside with particular attention to the slow speed jet and the main jet. This best left to someone with the proper skill level to do the job. However, it can be done by an advanced amateur.
I would also replace the intake gaskets while I had it down this far. Replace the gaskets where the intake connects to the cylinder head. The intake flanges are marked "F"ront and "R"ear. Install the new gaskets and loosely install the bolts. Once the carb is completed, install the carb seal on the intake and install the carb and bolt up the backing plate to the carb and the heads. This will align the intake. With the carb and air filter backing plate in place and tight, tighten the bolts that hold the intake to the heads. Reconnect the throttle cables (may require removal of the air filter backing plate) and make sure the throttle works correctly.
Regrettfully, this is one job that I strongly recommend a service manual. You know the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words". It certainly holds true in this case especially if you're going to tackle the carb yourself.
If I can be of further help, drop me a line directly at firstname.lastname@example.org Good Luck!

The pilot jet circuit is plugged up. Clean the carb. Remove the vacuum valve and keep it away from any spray. Remove the choke, air and throttle screws then spray into every hole you can find. The spray should go in one hole and come out another hole. Pay special attention to the jets. Important > count the number of turns inward to lightly seat the throttle and air screws. This is the number of turns you will need to open the screws after lightly seating them during re-assembly. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
