Has the bike been sitting for a while, it sounds to me that you might have a carburetor that is dirty from sitting, you might try draining the float bowl and put some fresh gas in it if you already haven't, if that doesn't help then you might think about having your carb cleaned.

Im still breaking in my bike,,why is there a ticking sound in the engine while running?

All the parts in your engine are wearing in. Part of the 600 mile check up involves adjusting the valves and the cam chain tensioner (if it is not self adjusting). Chances are the valves are wearing in, the gap is too wide, and just need to be adjusted back to the correct clearance. Worst case scenario the cam chain tensioner has failed.

What would be the problem if when you give the bike gas it cuts out? The bike starts fine just when u give it gas it dose not accelereate

This is a crack, pinhole or tear in the rubber carb diaphram or loose screws on the diaphram cap. The tear, pinhole or loose cap is killing the vacuum needed in the top of the carb to raise the carb slide to increase speed. Please rate my answer.
