Things to check:
So we need three things for the engine to run,
Timing of these is essential and the assumption is that the timing is correct.
Sounds like you have two of three, air and spark however the fuel seems to be restricted. From the description it sounds like the engine runs until the fuel in the carburetors is gone then a trickle of fuel eventually fills then up over time.
Check that the fuel line flows enough fuel to keep up with the needed.
i have searched the web , as i'm sure you have to, and can not find anything relating to this issue, i would contact honda motorcyle dealer and either get them to do it or get a driver's manual or just live with it,sorry could'nt have been more helpful
Hi, Dickson and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. A failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Faulty or corroded kill switch.
11. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Fuel tank empty.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked, loosen the gas cap and go for a test ride.
16. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
17. Vacuum line from the intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
18. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
19. Petcock clogged or damaged.
20. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.
21. Catastrophic engine failure, perform a compression test.

The internal design of a motorcycle ignition switch is typically complex and often is at least two independent switches working together. Where electronic immobilisers are concerned there is sometimes an in-built resistance the system must "see" before it will work.
Bypassing the switch safely would not be easy even with a wiring diagram and truth table and I suggest you don't try.
