Is it a carburetted or injection model?

Have you checked the fuel filter for clogging?
Did you check the spark plug condition?
What about ignition timing? Was any repairs done prior to this happening?

If the auto choke is not opened fully after engine is warmed, same symptoms.

Check carb sight glass for correct fuel level.

Remove air cleaner housing and you will see the carb. Choke opener is inside the horn.

Sight glass is at side of carb on timing belt side. Might require som cleaning to see clearly.
