Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially and while it would appear to be a fuel delivery issue, have you checked as below listed (even if just to eliminate them as potential suspect(s):• burn color of the ceramic at the tip end of the sparkplug;• integrity of the original air box + filter/element and ensure no air leak;• with a volt/multi-meter, determine the battery voltage when:- ignition OFF and then when ON;- starting the engine;- engine at idle;- attempting to rev the engine. Please post back results / observations of the above once checked.
