Have you checked the ignition coil and condensor? Sounds like a typical
ignition problem.
If not it can be a crack in the crankcase which due to expension when
getting warm opens up and thus looses the subpresure. It's a realy hard
defect to find, but I've seen it a couple fo times already.
Also check the sealrings.
