Question virago 250 stalling until hot

I have a 06 virago 250 that stalls whe I use the throttle until the bike is hot, then it is ok.

It starts fine with the choke then warms up in about 2 or three minutes, then I open the choke and it idles fine, but when I turn the throttle at this time, it stalls.

Is this normal for this bike? ( bike has 1500 mi ).

(when it heats up it works well) thank you for any insight.

Don't know if this is any help or not, I got an old 82 Virago that is very close to my heart, that's the reason I could not get rid of her when I got my 1100. The old girl is the same as what you are sayin, I just deal with it and let her warm up good, then all is well. Been that way from the start. Takes at least as long as you are sayin,to warm up good, if not more, nature of the beast. Hope this helps a little, maybe others have a good answer. Ride Safe.......
