It runs then dies

I start it, it chokes and runs fine until I click up the gear then it dies. Sometimes if it gets past that I can ride it around the block but if I stop turn it off then immediately try to start it it won't start. I have to wait like 20 min then it will start. Also the few times I got to ride it it really seemed to guzzle gas. Could this be a jetting issue?

safety switches in the clutch or kickstand???

[/SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] The mini-skirt is a very functional article of clothing. With it a woman can run much faster; and because of it she may have too.

Well definitely not in the clutch maybe the kickstand but I'm pretty sure that's not it either because it didn't ever do it before the handlebar switch.
