Might be trash in fuel system,check fuel filter for that first.If its dirty maybe you will have to have trash removed from the rest too.

i am having the same prob with my bike. when i ride it , a short time later the gauges dim and it dies shortly after. but bikes dont have alternators "mate" they have stators. there are 3 things in your charging system... battery, stator, and reclifier. if your battery is good i would take your bike and have the stator and redlifier tested. but i replaced all three and mine is still doing that so i thing my negative battery cable is shorting somewhere. charge ur battery and then test the volts on it it should be around 12.6v, and then disconecct ur negative cable from ur battery and wrap it up so it cant touch anything and come bak the next day and test ur battery again. if ur volts dropped thats ur problem

Same problem, runs fine with choke on, but when i touch the throttle it bogs out, sounds like its not getting any fuel. I cleaned out the carb and used fresh gas, but the problem persists. I'm going to try cleaning the air filter and getting a new plug. If thats not it it could be eletrical.
