Question about Suzuki Motorcycles
I have a Troy-Bilt push mower that does the same.
Try this - Run the mower until the point of quitting. Keep the hood up and be ready to remove the gas cap. As soon as you feel it start to stutter like it's going to quit, unscrew the gas cap and see if it comes back to life and doesn't quit.
If that works, then what is happening is that the gas in the carburetor bowl is getting depleted faster than the tank can provide it, possibly because of a clogged vent that's supposed to allow air back into the gas tank as gas is used.
You can try running with the gas cap not quite tight, to let some air seep in that way, but that's more prone to sloshing leaks. You could also try drilling a hole in the gas cap - about 3/16" is plenty, and stuffing a piece of natural sponge in to keep the gas in and dirt out. Synthetic sponge will deteriorate in gas.

this is an air intake problem check the air filter is clean also check air filter is the same model as original as some air filters require a carb retune to function properly

SOURCE: We changed the oil and
Clean the throttle plate-CRC Throttle Body Cleaner
Clean the MAF Sensor--CRC MAF Cleaner
Have the O2 Sensors tested
If it is 10 years old, the exhaust
converter may be plugged,that's
not good and shouldn't happen
Check for vacuum leaks
A leak causes the O2 Sensors to add fuel,
to account for extra air
Make sure the air filter box and ALL
Ducting to throttle is air tight

SOURCE: Throttle Body Injection (350 V8) It runs fairly good when it's cold but once it warms up it runs rough and once it dies or is shut off it will not start again? Also it has problems of Sputtering a
make sure vacuum port for PCV is pulling vacuum. They tend to get clogged with carbon when oil changes are over due , oil level is low
