Can you give more details? Did it restart right away, how was it running other wise, what do the spark plugs look like?

ok it is running fine but all of a sudden it would start stalling. but wen it stalled it would start easily. but then a bit later on it got real bad n would stall every5 seconds and it had trouble starting it.
my spark plugs should be fine as i only bought it a month ago and new spark plugs were put in from shop i bought it at!!

Check them anyways the 2 strokes like to munch on plugs...

What I would do, is pull the plugs and if they look fine spray them with some starting fluid and put them back in, if they don't look good then check the carbs to see if they are clogged, Also check the battery connections. I have an 04 stx 12 f and when I got it the battery was loose so when I would bounce the motor would die.

get a little flashlight and look into the cylinders while the pistons are all the way down. Describe the piston surface:
is there water/air in the separator

By checking the plugs, I meant look at the color. That will be a good indicator of how the engine in running.
Do a search for "reading Spark Plugs" and do some reading.
You want your plugs to have a chocalate brown color. If they are white/ash looking you are lean. If they are black you are rich.
Let up know what you find.
