Well, this is probably NOT the cause of it, but I had the same thing happen to mine Mid-Ride last weekend. Died in a mudhole, tried to restart, and it was acting like it was not getting fuel. Full choke would get it running momentarily. Tried restarting again, switching the tank to reserve, so on an so forth. Checked the plug, looked good and was dry. Opened the gas cap to see exactly how much fuel was left. tried to restart, and it fired right up. Went to put it back in gear and go and bang... died again. SOMEHOW I got condensation in my fuel VENT line coming out of the gas cap. I popped it off, blew through it and the bike ran great all day after that.
I HAD the vent line extended and run up inside a snorkel, so I didn't check that first. Turns out that the coupling I used had worked itself free and I was left with the factory vent line exposed.
My thought... try starting it with the gas cap off first. I know it's probably not the issue but if it is, you'll save yourself a lot of time and hassle.
