Question about Suzuki GSX-R 600 Motorcycles
Almost sounds like a vacuum lock ("it feels like it running out of fuel"), like the gas tank isn't venting.
Air has to be allowed into the gas tank to replace the fuel leaving it.
Next time it dies, open/take off gas cap and see if it fires up right away, instead of having to wait 10 minutes.
If that works, start looking at the vent lines and see if it's plugged, or a one-way valve isn't working, or the line is pinched.

first thing to do is to check fuel level. you mentioned about 290 miles since you owned it but no fillups. did you get gas from same store? not unusual to pickup trash or water in fuel from conv. stores. with that out of the way, look at your plugs and see what they look like. black and sooty would be fuel fouled and very white or very light tan would be lean. if plugs and fuel are eliminated, it could be the result of a stator coil starting to go south. these will require special tools to diagnose.

SOURCE: Running problems
I am not completely positive that this is your problem but one thing to try when it starts cutting out is to loosen the fuel cap. On a lot of 2000 through 2004 Harleys the vent in the fuel cap gets plugged up and creates a vacuum not allowing the fuel to flow to the carbs. If this doesn't help run the trouble codes to see if there is a ECM related problem. To access the codes, turn the ignition on for about 3 seconds (one second after the fuel pump stops running) and then turn the ignition off for 3 seconds. Repeat this, then turn the ignition on and the codes will flash on the check engine light after about 8 seconds. The first series of flashes (about 3 flashes per second) are intermission flashes then there will be a 2 second delay and the first code will flash. If the first digit of the code is 1 the light will flash one time and then there will be a 2 second pause before the second digit. There will be a 1 second delay between flashes for a digit of 2 or more. All codes are 2 digit codes. For example, 11 would be throttle position sensor, 12, barometric pressure sensor, 14 engine temperature sensor, 15 intake air temperature sensor, 16 battery voltage, 23 and 32 fuel injector, 24 and 25 ignition coil, 33 fuel pump relay, 52,53,54,55 ECM failure, 56 crank position and cam position sensor timing.
Hope this helps.
