Default Sputters & dies

My bike runs now and I can drive it down the road for about a minute then it sounds like it runs out of gas and sputters... why is this? I am using a bottle with gas and gravity fed because the tank needs work. Is it just because it needs the tank on working properly or is it just a bad spark plug? anything helps.... thanks

What kind of bike is it?

Is your bottle vented? If it's not, it wont flow fuel to the carbs.
