i was leaving from a CHP interview and i was at the stop light (i warmed it up a lil b4 i left) but i was reving it a lil at like 3-3.5 grand and it like dies for a sec then right b4 it completly stops it will rev up again(kinda like a putter but idk)
and then i hit a lil pothole and it died and came back like i bumped startred it!!?????
oh and every once in a while it backfires but not that big just a lil and it not very often
check the kickstand safety switch. if it's dirty give it a good cleaning. if still has a problem try bypassing it by disconnecting it and jumping the wires. Only bypass it temporarily for diagnosing though. If bad replace it. If this does'nt solve it also check the tipover sensor.

How long was the bike sitting before you bought it? Could be carb related, things gunked up and getting stuck. Also check the fuel line from the tank, its long to allow you to lift the tank up and stay attached, sometimes this kinks and restricts fuel.

Sounds like Carbs to me but, check the kick stand switch like suggested.
Check the on/off switch also. If the bike was parked out side or ridden in the rain allot some of the electrical stuff might be corroded.
