Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

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

Initially, it would appear to either be a fuel delivery issue or an electrical/ignition concern. Proposed tries (if have not been done) should symptom reappear:

  • • exercise clutch lever and re-start with the lever pulled in;
  • • check/clean/bypass the side stand switch;
  • • exercise the engine stop switch.

All others would require the use of a volt/multi-meter.
