    Sounds too rich. Possibly fuel/air or oil/fuel (its a premix two
    stroke right?) or a combination of both. Start by going back to the
    correct heat plug, clean the air filter and if using fully synthetic
    two stroke oil try 30:1.

    you're not using optimax are you? bloke I used to ride with had a 360
    on optimax that'd spit a few plugs each ride.
    too rich somewhere is likely, low spark strength is a possibility.
    check the electrical ground points and clean them up. does the bike die
    under acceleration, when you let it idle, riding slowly, or what?

    Go & buy the best synthetic oil you can afford & run it at 50 : 1 & your
    problems will leave.
