    ...and along these lines, give it a good shot of SeaFoam before pulling the carbs. It's really easy to screw them up if you've not done a carb service before. SeaFoam will break up some minor fuel related issues...but it won't break up solid pieces of debris lodged in a pilot jet, for instance.

    Here's your basic troubleshooting decision tree- "intake pipe" is the rubber boot between the carb rack and the head.

    does the bike have a sensor on the kickstand? if the sensor is shorting/breaking, it could be giving the engine some problems and killing it. Not really related to the throttle situation now, but maybe a vibration is knocking it into place ATM or something. Worth checking if you already tried the basic stuff.

    check the idle screw. mine fell off before inside the bike so if i didnt keep the revs up at a stop it would die.

    pull the carb apart and see what you find.
