    I drive my bike for a couple blocks, and then the engine stalls.
    I've read several stall threads.
    Its not the electronics, for sure.
    The problems occurred naturally, not after I tampered with anything.

    Any help is highly appreciated.

    Does it run out of gas?
    Loosen the gas cap as its vent may be blocked stopping the
    flow of fuel to the carb.

    Aside from that you don't give enough info to diagnose a problem.

    it works with the gas cap off... but not with it on.

    you will either have to drill a tiny hole in the cap so it can vent, or get a new gas cap with a vent that's not blocked.

    I drilled a hole. No more problems.
