Sounds like your float needs adjusted. It's to high and shutting gas off before it has enough in the bowl.

Do you have a manual to get specs?

Ok, thank you ill try that and yes i do have the manual.

Follow the manual and measure twice. A few thousandths off means something!

There's a filter inside the tank, pull off fuel hose and open petcock. There should be a endless solid stream.

It wouldn't cause it to cut off but a tight throttle cable could cause the high idle, need a little play in throttle

Air leaks also can cause high erratic idles. Look up"leak down tester" build one and see what you find. While pipe is off be sure it's not plugged from motor thru silencer

Clean carb, choke, airscrew, with air pressure and make sure jets and needle are stock along with setting airscrew and float to spec. Call any bike shop, they'll give you those measurements so you have a starting place that you know works

You might have multiple problems causing different things, just gotta eliminate one at a time and do it spot on accurate so that part is done
