Hi, Just got the bike and it was pretty neglected by the previous owner. Issue is it won't start unless I give it throttle but then it runs. But, when I let off the throttle it will not idle and just dies.

Thanks!

Replace gas, change oil, check air filter, replace primary fluid, replace spark plugs, and reset TPS.

That will either make it well, or something is actually wrong with it.

Drain gas at the plug on the fuel pump. Fresh gas and 1/4th a can of seafoam to clean the fuel injectors out. It's going to smoke while it does. Confirm front and rear header are both hot as sin.
