When it dies on the highway, get it off the road as quick as possible, open the hood, remove the breather and see if you can see and smell gas (strong enough to know it is getting plenty) in the carburetor .. if fuel is the problem, then replace the fuel filter ... if it is getting enough fuel, then it is electronic and would point to the electronic modulator.

you have to get a jump and you hear a clicking sound...sounds like an electrical problem to me. That clicking isn't coming from the carb, it's coming from the solenoid.
