g 650x country dies at idle

I just swapped out the air filter and battery in my g650x country, I'm not sure if this has anything to do with this issue but I wanted to give some background. I went on a solid 3-4 hour ride this weekend and everything was fine. I've been riding it to and from work all week and today it started cutting out at stop lights. If I don't rev the engine like a 65 y.o. salesman on his first Harley it will die immediately. When it does die it starts right up with one press to the starter.

Right now I'm assuming it's an issue with the fuel system. I'm going to take off the gas cap on my lunch break and then start it up again to see if negative pressure is building up in the tank and starving the bike for fuel but if that were the case I'm not sure why it would still start so easily. I'm hoping it's just a clog in the line that allows air into the tank but who doesn't hope for an easy fix.

Anyone with more experience have any tips?

I just went down at lunch and it was fine so wither it takes time for the negative pressure to build up in the tank or this only happens when the bike is warm. Who knows, it might never happen again.

Model year? Carbureted? Or FI? (please pardon my lack of knowledge of the product lineage)
Too much is just barely enough.....

Head over to the x bike issue log thread. The stalling problem is well documented......the repair is a bit of trial and error if I remember correctly.
2002 Yamaha PW80 don't break it dad!
1996 Honda XR250R just right.
