sounds like the choke is closeing,starveing for fuel,make sure the butterfly in carb is open,if closed wait until it is cold,seting overnight.remove air cleaner looking at motor on left passenger side on carb you will see a black round part on side of carb,loosen the 3 screws turn counterclock wise until butterfly is straight up,tighten screws replace air filter.give it a run .that is if it still has the factory carb on it.
