Sounds like the fuel line or gas valve at the bottom of the tank has a restriction.  

I would take the fuel line off of the carb and put it in a can of some sort and open the valve make sure there is good flow. 

If that is not the case then it would be inside the carburetor like a stuck float or something inside one of the jets. 

Thats easy enough to take apart and clean out. 

Was the bike sitting at all for a bit ?

Yes setting for about a year. I would start it once in a while and it starts right up. Starting riding it and it ran good for about a mile then die. If it sits for awhile it will start again but only for a short time. Thanks for the info. I took the fuel pump off but don't really think that is the problem. I turned gas  on and no gas in line, put it on reserve and had a full steam. That's the part I don't understand.

So I would drain the fuel out and take that gas valve off of the tank.  You can take it apart , usually a few screws that hold the thing together The main fuel port inside that patcock valve is prob clogged.  

Be carfeull not to damage the rubber gasket inside.  

I would also clean the carb as well. I have a feeling that float is not moving freely.  

Might as well do it now while your at it! 

Good luck!
