Sound like its not getting enough fuel when the choke turns off, try cleaning your carb.

I have a yamaha breeze quad. The battery went too low for my 'smart charger' ( 11.4v ) to charge it up, so I connected to a leisure battery reading 12.8v to start up the quad. The ignition light came on...

Go through all the wiring and strip all the points and rewrite all of them you can't really blow anything on those quads seen as they have no fuses so I'd say it's just a bad connection somewhere hope that helps!

I have a 1982 XJ750, and wont start. Once started runs well.

try to get a warmer spark plug and you may find that it will start better . the Yamaha have been hard to start and the only way to really start them up in winter or colder weather is to replace the plug by a warmer one . Do not go too hot as you may burn a hole in the pistons .

Hi i have a 1984 yamaha moto 4 quad it won't stay running but it has gas and spark

Are you sure you have gas? How long will it run until it dies? If it dies out once it warms up then you have a coil problem. More than likely what is happening though is that you have enough gas to start the engine but the flow rate is affected somehow and the carbs are not able to continue to supply the proper fuel amount. I would suggest rebuilding the carbs.

Engine dies after quad is warmed up (10-15 minutes)

Just a hunch, had this happen to a bike of mine years ago, could be the piston rings are gettting ready to go(wore down). What happens is when the quad is cold the rings expand tight into the cylinder walls allowing it to get full compression and run ok. When it heats up they shrink allowing the slightest amount of give which in turn will cause you problems similar to what your describing.
