You did not say whether or not this was a carburater engine but from the sound of it one of your jets may be sticking, a good cleaning of the jets will most likely fix the problem, the likely cause is a small build up or piece of debris on the jet.

Sounds like a fuel problem, possible stuck needle valve. Did you check for vacuum leaks? How about the fuel itself, did you treat it before storage to prevent gelling and varnish ? If not your entire fuel system may be restricted. Purchase a can of Seafoam...pour in 1/2 of it to a tank of gas, use the other 1/2 on the next tank. Change fuel filter afterwards because any foreign materials will be in the filter from the cleaning process. Third tank normal fill.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

Try the air filter first (make sure it's clean). The needle valve on your carb slider could be bent, or not seated correctly or just set wrong. If you have a power exhaust valve, it could be set wrong or malfunctioning as well. Good luck.

I'd bet you 10 to 1 it's not the coil. It sounds like it is starving for fuel and needs a carburetor adjustment. When you rebuilt the top end, did you put a bigger jug and piston? If so, your problem most definitely is the carburetor needs to be re-jetted.
What caused you to rebuild it? Did it seize, or quit running? Was it losing power before the rebuild?
That's where my money is but if you still believe it is the coil, you can check it with a spark checker. This is a handy little tool you can find at AutoZone, Harbor Freight, etc. It's a one piece tool that connects between the plug and the coil. The plug stays in but you remove the wire and put the checker on, one side connects to the plug, the other side you connect the plug wire. There is a light in the middle that will flicker when you crank the engine if it has a good coil.
Put the checker on and start the bike and see if you are losing spark...if the light stops flickering at top end, then you do have a coil issue...but like I said before, having seen this problem hundreds of times, my money will be on re-jetting the carburetor.
