    Check to see if this happens with a full tank of fuel. If it doesn't then it's possible that when turn the head, the filter is leaving the fuel supply when you're working with less than a full tank. Just a thought.

    Have you tried adjusting the high end needle? Usually go fuel filter and breather and then go to the needle adjustment. Be sure to keep ports cleaned. Temp change and a little use causes these kind of problems.
