Wow, that was a bit hard to read, try writing a little clearer. Anyway, sounds like you got a dirty carb. I know the bike is new, but it could have had gas sitting in the carb for weeks. Try cleaning the carb and all it's jets/passages. If you can't do it, take it to a reputable shop where they can clean it. How long is the warranty period in the UK? You might still be under warranty from Yamaha, check with your dealer.

It could just be a jetting problem. I bought a new 08 about a month ago and had to move the needle down to get it to run better. It was rich in the mid-range brand new. Runs better now but still not 100%. I have a slip on coming and want to see how it runs with that before pulling the carb again.

it could be a jetting issue, or a possibly a floatbowl level issue
or it is a TPS or CDI issue
Did the bike always run like this since you bought it?
If it is new and jetted correctly I would get the CDI and TPS setting tested by a dealer -

if the bike is warmed up hold the hot start when you start the bike. and I know what you mean about it stalling all the time but I have only noticed it when I chop the throttle. it shouldnt be stalling if you are high on the revs, sounds as if there is some dirt in the carb.
I have rejetted mine and will be getting a heaver flywheel to solve the stalling problem.
