Check the ground wire at the battery, at the negative post at the battery you'll find a smaller (black/yellow) wire, it must be plugged into the main harness, it might have become unplugged, the connections will be right close to the battery.

Hi can you just try something for me leave the fuel filler cap off and then start the bike and see if it will run properly if it does then this means your breather is blocked now this could be the cap itself or you may have seperate breather but well discuss more when we narrow it down a bit, if it makes no difference then the chances are you have a blocked fuel filter.

let me know what happens ok
