hey, find the below possible problem for your bike
1. Fuel line from tank to carburettor is bent
2. Choke left on. Symptoms of a choke on include spluttering and stalling on throttle bursts
3. Dirt in the carburettor.
4. Wet ignition coil.
5. Old fuel

above may help you find the answer.

Check switches located on the kickstarter or on the clutch lever. Malfunctioning switch will cause the problem you described. You will need an ohm meter to determine if the switch is operating correctly. May be able to jumper across the switch to determine if that is the problem.
