Engine dying at idle, running rough
Need help guys. Went for a ride today and the first two hours were perfect, didn't even have to pull the choke at first start up, idled fine, accelerated and stayed at a constant speed with no issues. Stopped for a bit and then went back on my way but the engine suddenly started having a hard time at idle, kept dying then started to run a little chunky, would not cruise smoothly and keeping it at one throttle position, it would act like it was having constant fight with itself in regards to how fast it wanted to go. I have read several post about rectifiers suddenly going out and fuel line clogs and such. The bike only has 24k and plan on lifting the tank tomorrow, just wanted to gets some helpful input in regards to specific things I should be looking at. Thank you for any and all assistance and insight that you can give me.
