Check your petcock first. If it runs fine for a bit it doesn't sound like a carb problem, it sounds like it's starving for fuel.

If the petcock is clear, don't buy an aftermarket carb. Every once and awhile someone will get one that works, but much more often they don't.

Take yours apart and clean it and reassemble.

I boil mine on a camp stove in a pot of lemon juice. You have to be careful to keep the throttle position sensor (left side of carb where an electrical plug goes) out of the boiling liquid, but boiling lemon juice does a great job of getting everything cleaned out.

Or get a new OEM carb.
