Another problem with vt500

Alright guys my bike has been running good recently but now i start it today and it is back to trying to stall at 2000-3000rpms.

If I pull the air filter and give a quick burst of carb cleaner into the air box it will run perfect for a couple of minutes, I mean wide open to idle and back never misses a beat.

But then it starts running the same again.

Could this be from an intake boot making it run really lean or something?

I would say you have a little fuel starvation issue. The following link will help explain how a carb works.
