Kawasaki Engine surging

I have a Kawasaki engine that may run fine or may start surging. If it does surge, it will last about 5 minutes and will die. Then it won't start back up until an hr or so. When it starts back up it may or may not surge. I've replaced fuel filter. I've replaced both ignition modules in the past. Surely they didn't go bad again? Any ideas?

If it surges,,,,what are the conditions? Were you mowing? Was it sitting? Hot cold?

I'm suspecting carburetor, it might be possible a piece of dirt got in the float bowl mechanism, perhaps carefully removing the bowl and cleaning everything out inside may fix it.

Mine was surging, took the bowl off sprayed the jets and bowl out with carb cleaner. It has been fine since then.

No luck with the surging. Cleaned carb couple weeks ago and it didn't help. Not sure what it could be?
