Check the in tank screen to be sure that it isn't plugged and also pull the petcock out and blow ait through it on the On and Res settings.

Similar problem here but I have good fuel flow through the petcock and the bowl/screen are clean. Just curious backroad, does your son's have an inline fuel filter between the petcock and carb?
