2006 fz6 starting issues

long story short, bike sat for 3 years, but 2 months ago, the bike would start and stay running once you twist the throttle, now after changing the oil 2 weeks ago and adding new gas, the bike will start, but stalls after twisting throttle, what could be some of the possible issues, thanks.

Dude Fz6 made to ride....

Besides looking for rust in gas tank you can put the bike in I believe its called DIAG mode and check the TPS sensor. They did have a TPS recall way back when but I don't remember if it included the 2006 model or not.

For Fz6 specific questions may I suggest the Fz6Forum.

do u think changing the fuel filter will work, or do we replace the fuel pump? this is the 1st time my husband worked on a bike. He drained the gas a few days ago, and put in fresh gas.

Like Japawhat02 said.
The pump must be clogged with junk. Only draining the tank is not going to take the dirt from the bottom of the tank. Take the tank out as well and clean it real good.
Go ahead and replace the filter as well, it won't hurt, but it's important to take the pump apart and clean it and test to see if it's in working condition.
If you see rust sitting on the bottom of the tank try this product

There are plenty videos on youtube showing how to use in motorcycle tanks.
Here is an example
