Bike runs for 15 min then dies?

Hey guys, got an 2000 S with fcr and after sitting for 8 months it has stranded me the last 2 times ive rode it. It fires up first try but after bout 15 min of riding it just dies,when i try to restart, it turns over but wont fire. It ran like a dream before it sat. Any suggestions were to look first?

I would start with checking and/or cleaning the carb.

Tank vent? Next time it happens open the tank and see if it fires?

Petcock leaking and letting gas get into the oil? Check the oil to see if it smells like gas.

I had same problem pilot jet is probablly plugged, ethanol gas stinks.

Thanks fellas! I will check and try all.
