Trouble starting and stalling.

Hey folks. I'm having some issues that seem to only appear when my 2013 Ninja 300 is warm. When it starts up everything is great. It starts easily and works great. After a while though, it seems like it's significantly more difficult to keep it from stalling on take-off after coming to a complete stop. However, it does not typically stall and seems to idle fine without irregularness when I just come to a complete stop. Another thing I noticed is it seems to have kind of like a ticking noise coming the engine, particularly when moving. The last thing is it has difficulty starting if I arrive at a short stayed at destination and it is still warm when I start it back up; I have to give it gas while starting it.

As for what I have recently done to it,
1. Replaced the battery with some kind of Walmart battery that their computer thing recommended.
2. Replaced air filter CICMOD High-Performance Flow Panel Air Filter
3. Replaced spark plugs NGK Iridium IX Spark Plug CR8EIX
4. Replaced oil Kawasaki 10-40 and oil filter. Kawasaki filter

If any one has any advice, it would be greatly appriciated.

Thank you so much.

are you sure you're in first when stopped?

How old is the gas, and are you running regular 87 octane?

Not sure if the ticking noise is related but it sounds like a possible lean running condition. These engine runs more rich when it's cold so if there is an issue with fuel delivery it would be potentially less apparant when the engine is cold.
It may be a blocked in tank filter or failing fuel pump (or a lot of other things those are just 2 common fuel delivery failures in fuel injection systems)

The ticking could be misadjusted valves. How many miles and when were the valves last adjusted?

Did the ticking and running issues happen at the same time?

Did the bike sit for any length of time?
