    Got it back from who after what?

    We're psychopathic here, not telepathic.

    Got plenty of fuel to da carb, verified by disconnecting da fuel hose and turning on the petcock?

    "New" is nice, but is this "brand new built by someone else with no information"?

    Is your clutch correctly adjusted? Can you keep it from dying by giving it a bit more throttle?

    sorry its not much, its brand new built by someone else.
    I will check fuel lines but this just started to happen after say 10 starts
    if I give it some throttle it will stay alive and then die right when I let off the throttle.

    The idle could be set too low

    I'd also check voltage at the battery when its running, make sure you are getting enough. also 2nd bumping the idle up some and see if it does the same

    When you click into first, is it acting like its bound up?

    not sure what you mean, but it just seems to die out like its running out of gas.

    Does it run fine otherwise, no back firing or coughing?

    If the bike is brand new and you just got it off the guy who built it then why not take it back and ask him to fix it?
    The more you fuck with it the less likely he is to take responsibility.

    Did your builder not test ride the bike??????

    Not to be a dick, but I agree. If the bike was just built and everything is new then the builder did something wrong or otherwise didn't put enough shake down miles on it to be sure it was solid.

    Clutch or clutch cable could be adjusted wrong. If clutch is not fully disengaging when you pull clutch in it would cause motor to stall when you shift into first. New cables will stretch for the first bit especially if low quality. I expect to have to re check everything multiple times during break in. How much free play do you currently have in clutch lever?

    honestly I think this is the problem as well(clutch), when I got it back from this shop called "ROOSTER MACHINE" out in California (which they love to find ways to make excuses and find ways to charge me, like a delivery charge to take and pick up parts for powdercoat) the clutch lever is so hard to pull, is started to get a little bit softer, after a couple miles of riding, but still hard to pull, and the manufacture of revtech (5 in a 4 speed case) thinks the clutch was not adjusted properly (1.5 bdl open primary with bdl clutch) this shop has been a nightmare, and they like to make it seem they did nothing wrong.

    First off pull your clutch cable and lube it up. If they forgot to do this it makes it hard to pull. Put back together and properly adjust the clutch. There are a ton of instructions and videos online that go over this procedure.

    If it is still hard to pull they make softer clutch springs for those bdl clutches, or you can remove springs at even intervals until it is easier. Google bdl clutch and look under images, and you will see what I mean.

    Also make sure there are no harsh bends in the clutch cable.
