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?
