When exactly is it stalling? when you pull the clutch in to take off or when you take the choke off. Or when you just sat on it? we may need a little more info.

Theres a safety switch that will make the bike stall if the kickstand is down and you try riding. Maybe it went bad / got old and worn ... it happened on my bike and the switch was just bypassed as a cheap fix. Mine would shut off randomly while riding because of it.

the switch only shuts the bike off when you put it in gear with the kickstand down. from what he said I think it shuts off as soon as he leans it off the kickstand. which is weird.

hopefully it is only the switch. check or replace
