    are the plug fowled and anyway and are you setting the gap on the new plugs?

    If plugs are fowled you may have a cylinder gone bad.

    And if you haven't set the gap that would explain why they are good at first. The gap is just getting wider after using.

    On a related note, check the screw that hold the choke lever. When mine was new, the choke lever would vibrate to the"choke on" position and kill the engine. Just tighten the screw to fix it.
