Sounds like it wont stay running because its too lean. Whether thats due to the tune being off for your climate or some other issue(like a vacuum leak) you'll have to figure out.
If its the tune, getting the bike warmed up should be the hardest part. Once its warm, it should run on its own. Have u tried cranking and keeping the bike at 1500 rpm or so to for a few secs?? Shouldnt take more than 30-45 secs to have it idling on its own.
However, if u hear poping dont stay on the throttle. Thats preignition, not good for the motor.
If u have a bad enough vacuum leak, hhe bike could have similar symptoms or may not run even when warmed up as the mixture will be too lean at any engine temperature. Check the rubber vacuum caps and rubber throttlebody adapter for cracks.
