Question about Yamaha G5 Motorcycles
Not knowing the year of your bike, I would suggest the following; Remove the float bowl and
clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective
goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways
and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and
the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower.
Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Sounds like fuel starvation, check the flow of fuel fromthe tap by removing the fuel pipe allowing the fuel out by turning the tap to the on position you should have a steady flow of fuel,
Secondly the main jet inside the carb may be blocked or restricted, or the float valve may be stuck closed, as when you start the bike it gets the fuel by the primary jet, and or the choke jet located inside the carb it will run until you open the throttle and give it more air its call for fuel cannot be met and the engine will die. Remove carb carefully dismantle and cleane out the main jet, and check the flow of fuel past the float valve, carefully replace and reassemble.
