I've complained about this before but I havent had time to bring it in to the shop yet.

here is what is happening. With kickstand down and tilted (stored over night), then start the bike up in the morning after 45sec-1min the bike stalls as if it ran out of gas, if I manage to keep it running by applying a little gas the stalling goes away and starts up normal.

With the rear stand on (bike perfectly vertical) the bike doesnt stall after starting.

This almost seems to me that there is air getting in to the fuel line? Does this seem like a plausible explanation? I dont know how air would get in the line sitting on its kickstand. I figured after I run it a while the air is out of the line.

Again is this a plausible explanation? is there a way to purge the fule line of air?
