possibly the fuel supply is the culprit. seen this on several occasions with Ducati where the fuel filter has been clogged, or an internal fuel line in the tank had a tear/crack so it can't build up enough pressure.

Unless you stored it with ethanol free fuel or added stabil or something you might have some associated build up. Before pulling the pump to do the filters, run a bottle of 'petrol magic' through a tank of fuel. This might do the trick. Failing that, there is a greek chap on ebay selling filter kits. I used these on my ADV. Loads have used these filters and they are good quality.
