check your idle screw it's probebly screwd out to much so when you brake you bush the throttle back to much.. not letting any air into the engine

With the engine off turn the reiceiver on and check the linkages. apply the brakes and check to see if this forces the carb arm closed with the airfilter off. You need 1-2mm gap for idle.

check to see if the clutch shoes are melted into the bell, that could be your prob.

The HD ones wont save you money they twist and bend less, but they snap the ends off alot easier depending on how you drive it.
