The problem im having goes something like this and i hope some one can help.
When i start the bike and let it warm upfor a minute or two.Then I go riding with the temp right at the normal line in 4 or 5 gear the intake becomes very throaty sounding, and it starts to stumble and then stalls. I then pull over to the side of the road and it takes a little bit before it will start. Then it runs rough and a little of running the engine at 3000 rpm it clears up and then is ok
and will run fine all day long. if any one can help thank you

Hmmm... running the Seafoam through it would be a good start.

Keep putting it in. It sometimes takes a while to clean out the gunk.

Mine does that if I start it without the choke. It doesn't seem to build enough vacuum to open the fuel petcock, it would then just burn what was in the carb bowl and then die. I've been starting it using the choke (even when warm) and it hasn't done it since.

Depending on what's stuck in there, seafoam might not be able to clear it. If it's a fuel by-product like varnish or gel, seafoam will eliminate it, but a small spec of rust, or rubber will just be there until you can clean it out or get it to move.

Check the vent hole in your gas cap. It may be plugged and the gas needs proper venting (both in and out) to maintain proper vacuum.
The other thing to check is the hose in the right ear (air filter casing) Make sure it is properly seated and the tip is cut at 45 degrees so it doesn't bottom out. If the ears have been removed (also known as an ear shave) the make sure the hose is not kinked or pinched and is routed so that it gets good air flow

I did a search on "seafoam" couple days ago and I think there were 5 pages of threads where seafoam was mentioned.
