    Sounds like it's lean.

    If it's been sitting for any length of time, the fuel delivery passages in the carb may be slightly gooed up. May have to take it apart for a good cleaning.

    Clean it and put some sea foam in the gas. That will help clean it out and keep it clean as well. If it still does it, you will have to adjust the carb a little.
