    A little more info might help. Any mods? or bone stock. Is this a recent issue?

    Start with the basic stuff of checking the battery cable connections at both ends of the cables ensure they are clean and tight

    I would check fuel flow or pressure depending on carb/FI.

    You might try siphoning some gas from the bottom of the gas tank, look for debris or tank lining.
