400 sputters and pops when hot

Hi, I have an 2004 arctic cat 400 (Suzuki eiger), it only had 130 miles when I bought it. I've cleaned the carb many times. It ran great for 50 miles or so, now when it gets hot it sputters and pops and wont move just idle.

Any help or insight appreciated!
Thanks in advance

Have you pulled the plug to see if it's running lean or rich? If I had to guess I'd start with checking if it has a vacuum leak on the intake manifold
