    Have to give a little more info on your bike before anyone can answer. Is this bike new to you? Aftermarket intake? Exhaust? Jetting? Battery?

        My '01 just started doing the same thing. After a complete teardown of every possible problem , I pulled my Starter , Opened the Brush end and DUMPED a TABLESPOON FULL of CRAP OUT. Air Blow out , wipe down , a little dab of oil on the Bearing , put it back together , replaced it and BANG !! Everything is COOL.

          I apologize, it ran ok last year, it had sat for 5 years, it was my dads bike and he was unable to ride it anymore, he passed away 4 years ago so I am working on it to keep it running. I am sure the carb needs gone through. And that is prolly the main issue I would assume, just got it on the lift ready to start working on it. I has always run a touch rough. I spent a lot of time last year dealing with old gas issues.

            The entire fuel system is likely plugged up with ethanol gas that has turned to gel. That includes the fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel lines, carburetor and float bowl. Clean everything and run a couple tanks of seafoam through it.
