Hi I'm new to motorcyles I bought a 2007 Blast a few months ago and I heard this is the pace to go for troubleshooting. The bike had just over 5000 miles when I bought it and the seller told me it doesn't will start to bog down and die unless give throttle. I was just so excited so I just screw it and bought it thinking it wasn't a big deal. I've been riding for like 2 weeks(100 Miles) and I've had no problems besides that idling issue only a couple of times. But on my way to work the other day I accidentally jerked back on the throttle pretty rough and the bike bogged down and died. I pulled over and it wouldn't start back up. Someone pulled over(who claimed to be a biker and seemed like he knew what he's talking about). He said it was the battery. He hooked up his minivan to the bike and let it sit for like 20 minutes. Bike started and was able to get to work. After that the bike would start right away then die after 30 seconds. Once it died it wouldn't start it would sound like it was trying to turn the engine over but nothing. If I let it sit for an hour I can come back and start it right away again but it'll still just die. Guy who pulled over said it might be the regulator but I fully charged the battery and tested the volts while trying to start the bike and got like 10.6 which from what I understand means the regulator is good. Anyways I put a whole tank of gas in there and now it'll start every time and idle for a little longer and it'll sound normal but the rpms start to drop and it now it seems giving it some throttle doesn't help at all. I'm sorry for the long post but I don't know where to go from here. It might be something small and stupid so please any help would be appreciated.

Two different situations.

As to the idle and then not starting, start looking for whatever is causing a lean situation. Possible clogged idle jet, leak in the intake hose (known as Das Boot). Check in with the folks in the Thumper Forum for more.

With the engine running, at 2k rpm or so, you should have 13.5V or so, up to 14.5V across the battery terminals. 10.6V while trying to start shows the battery is kinda healthy; has nothing to do with the regulator.

Hope this helps, Dave

I went out earlier and tried to ride it. I left the kickstand down and obviously the bike stalled and now it won't start unless I open the throttle a little bit and when I close the throttle it dies also exhaust is burning hot just after a minute but engine is not hot at all. Is that still related to one of those issues or is it something else?

The exhaust is a thin wall metal tube that does heat up quickly. The engine takes a while. Not really related to other problems.
