try simple option first like change the spark plug as plugs can fail under load and cause this? if no improvement then I would get a multi meter and test resistance readings on your stator connection leads and also check resistance on your ignition coil pack - Your service manual will have the range of in spec readings for you to check against
This symptom sounds almost guaranteed to be electrical fault - best case new spark plug or worse case new stator or ignition coil required any auto ranging OHMS meter will give you enough information to know if stator needs replacing as your readings will be way out of spec on one or all of the sources
good luck regards Jamie

Hi, if you have the new seal, and the outer radius of the seal is plain, with no locators then you can simply remove the seal by hooking it out of the case, if it has a lip around the inside edge or any type of locateing device, the engine caseswill have to be separated to install the new seal, unfortunatly, you dont say what the model of the bike is

Test the bulb with two wires to the battery.

Check the grounds.

Check the switch.

Then clutching at straws, the continuity of all the wires involved. They often break inside the insulation where the wire flexes from headlight unit/forks to the frame.

Step 1 Pull back the rubber cover of the clutch lever to reveal the lock nut and adjusting screw. Loosen the lock nut with a wrench. Tighten the adjuster screw until it won't turn any more.
Step 2 Remove the left frame cover of the body of the bike and set it aside in a safe place. Remove the bolts holding the secondary gear case cover and the clutch release cover with a socket wrench. Remove the secondary gear case and clutch release cover and set them aside.
Step 3 Find the lock nut and screw located at the lower end of the clutch assembly cable. Loosen the lock nut. Loosen the screw by three rotations. Slowly finger tighten the adjusting screw until you start to feel resistance. Loosen the screw a quarter-rotation. Tighten the lock nut to hold it in place.
Step 4 Locate the lower cable adjuster above the clutch release cover. Loosen the two lock nuts of the adjuster with the socket wrench. Turn the cable adjuster screw and check the clutch lever as you turn. Tighten the adjuster screw until the clutch lever will wiggle loosely or "play" about 1/8-inch. Tighten the lock nuts.
Tighten the lock nut of the clutch lever. Replace the clutch release, secondary gear case and left frame cover. Pull the rubber cover back over the clutch lever.

There should be an adjustment on the carburetor. If you follow the throttle cable to the carburetor, and turn the throttle, you will see what moves on the carburetor when opening the throttle. Whatever part moves, there should be a screw or knob that you can adjust to raise or lower the idle.
