Maybe - can you charge the battery?
If the voltage is too low, the FI won't work properly.

Sounds like a loose piece of crud in the main jet. Have you had the jet and tube above it out? It could also be a spark problem. See if you have spark when it tries to die ( put a nail in the plug boot and get it sparking 1/4" or so to the plug at idle then rev it up, it should continue jumping. I think that bike will also have mechanical spark advance on the rotor on the end of the cam. If the springs are loose on that the spark timing will be all over the map and can make it run intermittantly.

This sounds like no fuel flow to your carb. I would proceed as follows:
Pull fuel hose from the inlet of the carb and see if you have flow, if not, check for plugged screens. While in this step, consider draining all fuel and replace with new fuel.

If you did have fuel flow, you will need to take the carb(s) apart and see what is wrong. Some times the float needle gets stuck and a moderate tap on the carb body with a screwdriver handle sometimes releases it, otherwise, you need to open the carb and look for gummed up orifaces and inlet valve issues.
