Also check your spark plug for fouling and the gap is correct.
Would agree, if the pilot jet is dodgy, you will get fuel/no fuel at low speeds but once you get going the main jet kicks in and away you go. Always look for the easiest/cheapest answer first.

Does your fuel cap have a breather hole? on older bikes the breather would suck dirt and water into the breather hole and this would mimic fuel starvation as you were building a vacuum in the tank. I'm not so hot on them new-fangled machines but I know a little about older stuff.....
