A lot of times the cards rarely get cleaned even if it seems cleaned....I always take carb cleaner to each jet then just to make sure shoot air through the jets an around outside and inside carb or carbs.....if that didn't help then maybe the air and fuel adjust screws vibrated loose...should be 2 screws either by the fuel line side of carb or on top .....if u don't know much about those tuning screws then I'd recommend taking to someone who dose otherwise you'll sell it be for it gets set right again

Black fuel is a sign of too much fuel. Too much fuel will dilute the oil causing it to be thin and sucked into the cylinders. Check the air filter and carb float level.

Check the rear shock absorber and spring. Some bikes have preset 'notches' to raise and lower the ride height. You will need to raise the bike on a SAFE centre lift to take the weight off the rear suspension arm to adjust it. Most bikes have it set to the middle notch as standard. If the shock assembly is still too high you might need to replace the shock And spring to a shorter, stiffer set.

Connect an OBDII code reader into the diagnostics to read the fault code!
Fix the fault and then reset the codes!
If the fault is fixed the vehicle will be driveable again!

First make sure that the starter is not loose and that there is nothing blocking the starter drive from enguaging to the flywheel. Also check for 12 volts at the starter when you turn the key. Could also just be a bad starter.
