Question about 2005 Suzuki Boulevard S40

Bike stalls at traffic stops unless I keep giving it gas

My Boulevard s-40 tends to stall when I come to a light and have to stop. If I don't keep giving it gas it dies.

    I changed the oil on Suzuki s40-2005 recently and filled with fresh gas. Started up fine, rode 3 blocks and it died at intersection. pushed it home, charged up the battery overnight. tapped off the oil (1/4/quart) 
    The next morning it starts fine, I let it idle in neutral, then 3-5-minutes later, it stops.
    I try 2-3 more times to start. Engine turns over then dies.
    Please help, I don't know how to get it in to someone to work on it

    My bike won't start unless I give it some throttle and today I was half way through a ride, downshifted and bike stopped working. Thought it was out of gas, put more in and it still isn't starting. I hear it clicking but engine never picks up. Suggestions?

Check for vacume leaks first. Rubber lines..gaskets to carbs ect. Also remove and blow out your fuel line to tank and change out filter. Hope this helps.:)
