SOURCE: 2001 raptor cabs not getting gas
Ihad this problem, I let gas sit in the motorcyle over winter. Bad mistake,The whole carb needs cleaned. I took my carb to the yamaha shop and they charged me $146.00 to fix it. Or you can take the jets and needle seat out and soak it in carb cleaner for a couple of days. Yamaha soak the carb in carb cleaner for 2 or 3 days, remember to remove any plastic, gaskets, rubber.

Sounds like a fuel or intake problem to me, start the bike and spray brake cleaner onto the intake where it goes into the head, if the bike stumbles then you have an intake leak and have to change the seals or just tighten up the intake manifold. Another thing you could do is remove the carb (if it is carburated) remove the float bowl and clean everything including the jets, you could have some **** in there that is plugging things up. Also try removing the air cleaner and spraying a can of carb cleaner into and around the carb. Also try removing the gas tank and completely cleaning it and the petcock screen out, you could have something in the gas tank that is migrating to the petcock and causing a blockage.

CHECK THE IDLE ADJUSTMENT AND CORRECT IF NEEDED. IF THIS DOESNT CORRECT THE PROBLEM, YOU MAY HAVE TO HAVEA THE CARBS CLEANED AND SYNCED. ESPICIALLY AFTER SITTING A YEAR!

Hope you drained the oil and also changed the oil filter.
This problem of cutting off is a carburator/fuel related issue.
I guess the fuel might not be pouring in to the float chambers faster enough.
Try this, remove the air -filter and thn start the engine and as it is about to cut off, block the intake(by your palm) at the carburators and see what happens...taking care not to over block it as the gas may pour out and also flood in the combustion chamber rendering it to shut off due to to much fuel.
If it does respond and stay running thn the problems is tht the carbs are not getting the gas as required and probabley you may have to recheck the float level, the float pin,carb synchro, air-fuel mixture.
Check the pet- c o c k too.
Hope this helps!

Check for your accelerator pump is pumping fuel directly into the engine when you rotate the throttle, if not then you probably need a carburator fuel pump kit. (usually located on the outside of the carbs). However, through following the mechanical linkage, you can see that it leads directly to the little pump assembly as well.
Good luck my friend.
