I have a gl1100 it starts and runs at Idle but when you pull away it just dies, cleaned the carb single carb conversion, som times it will run for a mile or so before it stops running other times just a vew feet if your lucky, hope someone can help.

There may be just enough fuel to get it going but not enough fo the higher demand.
I'd suggest inspecting fuel flow, pressure and filter
