I had the same problem with my Puch Maxi. Your engine might be stalling out because your exhaust is plugged.

Pull the gas line at the carb and let it run into a jar or can. If you have good flow, this is not the problem. If not, follow the line back until you find the problem.

If you have good gas, how long is it before the bike will re-start and do you have a good spark when it won't start?

Make sure the float needle isn't clogged.

What do you mean the "carb was cleaned".

You took the carb off and took it all apart and blew out all the orifices with compressed air and carb cleaner?

Getting the carb out on a PA-50 is a major pain... as I'm sure you know if you had it out.

An inline filter won't restrict the gas flow on a ped.

switch out the spark plug with a new one and make sure it is gapped correctly.

good luck
