bike stalls out of no where

hey everyone maybe you can figure this one out. i just did the ear shave and had the carbs taken off sonic cleaned and had bigger jets put in. i got the bike all back together a few weeks ago have put over 100 miles on it without no problems. yesterday i start it up run down the street and it started to cut out and it stalled. it wouldnt start right off the rip. so i open the tank look in to make sure i got gas and i do. wait a few then i try again fires right up. so i go back home leave it run for 10 minutes figuring it was just something stupid. i go about 3 miles maybe and does it again. i pulloff to the ice cream store and do the same thing. this time i put the tank marker on reserve and left the tank open and it fired up. wtf is going on with this? does that pump where the gas comes out need replaced? thanks again

I had the same issue with mine and it was the vent that runs from under the cap and comes out under the seat.It was pluged.Ran some wire through it and then blew it out and it's been goo ever since.

that isnt a pump at the bottom of the tank but if i were to guess is u ran out of gas so when u went to reserve it was all good ...

What did u do with the carb vent hose? make sure that one is unobstructed too ...

His carb vent hose goes to an Emgo breather and the hose is new. He did an earshave and I gave him the info he needed.
