Bike starts, but then dies after a min

I have finally figured out all the hiccups along the way to have my bike ready for the road. It ran good yesterday, but today it starts but after a min or so it just dies. I wait for a bit till the battery is charged up via battery tender. Just to make sure battery isn't drained too low. Then it will fire up and after a min or so it will die?? I made sure the peacock is on all lights are working, electrical is fine, just seems to die...

You are going to have to make some quick checks when it dies....first pull your hose and see if you still have gas....next check to see if you still have spark...if the starter turns it over , then your battery is not the culprit..

Death after close to 1 minute sounds like no gas... Nothing else dies like that...
After it ran good have you changed anything?

Check for insulation around your fuel line,you might be building vapor locks.
Try also to run with the gas tank cap off.. And if it does, check you cap- might be poor venting.
