    Check carb to intake joint (I wrap with teflon tape to prevent leaks), intake gasket, torque on head nuts. (8 lb/ft - use a torque wrench, easy to overtorque and bugger up)

    Good Luck!

    i had the same problem, engine works just fine if im moving but would stall when stopped. turned out that the clutch wasnt disengaging fully, adjusted it and it works fine now

    Won't hurt to check your mixture either,& maybe even bump-up your idle speed slightly,after the problem is diagnosed.
