Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, which/what bike please?

Still, the described symptom almost always is a fuel delivery issue. Proposed first check (if have not been done) would be to determine the burn color of the spark plug tip.
