The first thing you need to check is the air filter. Sometimes critters can get into the airbox when a bike sits for awhile. Sounds crazy, but it has happened to me. If nothing is blocking the filter, give it a quick clean since you have it out.
Next things to check:
Improperly adjusted fuel level
Clogged or loose main jet
Faulty fuel pump
You may not be able to check these on your own, but these are the next likely culprits.
Hope this helped

This is a safety issue. Ever flew over the handlebars at 60 miles per hour because the back wheel locked up? It sounds like a serious lack of lubrication. Take the wheel assembly apart and see what is going on. If in doubt, have the dealer look at it. Any product recalls on your bike? Check it out.
Please rate this answer. Thanks jerboe!

SOURCE: Replacing broken drive shaft
the u joints definitely need lubrication and as far as breaking a drive shaft I personally have never seen one break unless someone has been really hammering it or doing a lot of burnouts
