Most likely your tune is off however, there are many tiny peices in the engine that can become clogged easily. The con rod should have a little pinhole to help lube the bushing on the end that connects to the crankshaft. Also all of the little pieces in the carb. I would tear the entire engine down, clean and lube everything with a SMALL coating of after run oil. Also check your bearings while doing this. Then assuming everything including the bearings are cleaned, relubed and put back together with fresh glowplug fuel lines and filter, you should be fine.
