A carburetor rebuild kit costs around $20-30 on ebay. These are very simple carburetors. Once it is off the engine, it is simply a matter of removing the old parts, cleaning the carburetor body, and reassembly.

What do you mean by "burnt"? A black sooty plug suggests the engine is running a too rich a fuel mixture.
A blistered, dry plug suggests the engine is running too hot.
There are many reasons for a burnt plug including engine overheating, wrong or loose fitting spark plugs, wrong fuel air mixture or even an old dirty air filter.
I suggest you take it to a good mechanic so they can look at the bike to see what other engine areas could be causing the issue.

Likely a fouled carburetor or water in the fuel bowl. Try draining all the fuel, see instructions in manual.

Take a clean dry fuel container to the gas station and get 1 gallon of fresh fuel. Add 1 ounce of Seafoam fuel treatment. Measure don't guess. Poor entire gallon into generator.

Start generator. If same problem, then carburetor is fouled and will need cleaning. You could try running with the treated fuel and it may clear the fouling. Otherwise a more thorough cleaning will be necessay.

Sounds like it may have a fuel restriction. Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Look for damaged fuel lines or a line that is close to an exhaust system. Possible a fuel pump going out. Does it do this when you are low on fuel and not when the tank is full? If so then the pump is overheating because the fuel is too low and not helping to cool the pump.

If you have clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder might need bleed air out.
Remember when bleeding brakes keep the master cylinder full of oil or you will suck air back in line. Should have 2 hole in bottom of master cylinder. Make sure holes are not plugged. One the fluid goes out the other the fluid comes back in.
