Thanks for the feedback! I am getting close to throwing a tarp over it, and keeping it out of site out of mind for awhile, haha!
I do know at one point the tach went straight to zero when in second. (I am not positive if it does it every time, when it happens I am looking at everything all at once trying to get it running, so not certain. It sounded like it had shut off, but I pulled back on the gas all the way and it started moving again. Thats when it was sputtering at one point.
Pulling the throttle doesnt help it start. When I stall I basically try to get it started as followed. Pop it in neutral try to start - no go. turn on the choke try to start - no go. choke off petcock on - no go. leave the choke on put petcock on prime - no go. Crank throttle 5 to 10 times leave on choke and petcock - no go. then I just try a variation of those until something does work.
Problem is (and to give a more exact idea if it helps) I rode for about 40 minutes yesterday, when I stopped at my moms place and left it running. Came out, sat on the bike get it off the kick stand and it died as soon as I threw it in first and tried to go. Diddnt want to start for 15 minutes... Got it running, sputtered through 1st and second, went down the road 4 miles, came to a red light and stalled again as soon as it turned green and tried to start moving. Couldnt get it running for 10 minutes. Got to a restaurant got a bite to eat, and when I came out an hour later it starts right up, go 200 yards down the road sputtering like crazy turn the choke on a bit stops it from sputtering, come to a stop, stalls out, and cant get it started. Tried until it drained the battery. (Also if it helps, it sometimes will shut off when I first start it just by tilting it from the kickstand).
As far as the petcock, and the spark plugs I can check either today or tomorrow. I will let you know what I find.
