      Dirty carb/fuel... Check and clean.... Start with jets... Check fuel filter and petcock screen/filter and carb inlet screen filter. Then check for air Leaks (nipple on top of manifold etc).
      LET'S RIDE

        Coughing out the carb and dying, while trying to pull away from a light, isn't entirely unusual. It can happen from time to time, but if it happens often, it may be your accelerator pump needing some adjustment. Check out the article in the tech section. But before you start messing with the carb settings I'd run through a couple tanks a fuel with several ounces of SeaFoam in it. Ride it hard, working through the rev range, and be sure to do some wide open throttle standing starts, running it all the way up to the rev limiter, as you go through the gears.

          Thanks guys for the solid advice, I am not too concerned because it has only happened this one time. These bikes do seem to have their own personality, maybe i did piss it off.
