Check your idle gap. Should be .5mm to 1mm open.

Maybe to rich if your idle gap is set right. lean out your top end a tad and see if it stays running. Also read the top thread posted here by Houston. It's all about tuning

Are you letting the engine get up to temp before you give full throttle?

Ron Paris is considered to be one of the best engine guru's ever. All the youtube videos really dont teach much. Try leanign the LSN.
