Many things can cause this symptom. First check your air filter to see if it is clogged. From there move to the fuel system. Be sure the carb is not being restricted by debris. Check your fuel lines for kinks or cracks and make sure the filter is still good.

Most likely it's a carburetion problem. Get a spray can of carburetor cleaner at any auto parts store, and clean the carburetor. It may also need adjustment, which can usually be done with just a screwdriver.
