So I just bought a 03 1300 bought it from a older man that bought it new and has had it every since last week until I got it. Say for 7 years. So when I got started drained all the fuel out went thru the hole carb multiple times all fuel lines clear new petcock and plugs as well. Now it will sit there and idle all day long can rev it and everything but as soon as you put it in gear and take off it’ll bog itself down and cut off. Will fire right back up and idle just fine then do the same thing every time. Anyone have any recommendations on what could be the next step or something someone else has come across?

Check vacuum hoses, they crack/split on the hose interior.
2003 1300 - the only year that had an electric fuel pump(FP).
2004 and up had gravity flow.
Many have died. Check fuel flow.

Idle too low??? Did you clean the main jet/emulsion tube?

Kick stand UP when you put it in gear??? KS has to be UP before you put it in gear..

ACO has a vacuum hose to intake manifold.
Did you get the 2003 petcock or the later vacuum operated petcock?
Throttle Position Sensor plugged in???
Look at this link.
Emulsion tube above the Main jet. Main jet screws into emulsion tube.
Low speed jet also has emulsion tube on it.
