Next time it stalls remove the air cleaner and and check that it has fuel. The carburetor's accelerator pump should give a nice healthy squirt of gas when the throttle valve is opened up.

If it squirts, try restarting and if it doesn't start your problem is probably electrical. If it doesn't squirt it is probably fuel somewhere between the tank up to and including the carburetor.

If it squirts and starts nothing is revealed. Next time it stalls repeat the process.

Good Luck
