Default Carburetors or Fuel Injection Problem?

I recently installed a new gas tank but now everytime i try to open throttle i stay at low rpms and start to bogg down untill my engine just shuts off. It sounds really bad i was wondering what the problem could be if anyone knows.

Well, it can't be carbs or fuel injection. Depending on the year, the bike has one or the other, not both.

Sounds likes a fuel flow issue related to not enough gas to the injectors...if that's what you have. What year bike is this?

Check to see if the lines are pinched somewhere and make sure everything is connected correctly. Did you replace the fuel filter? Could be it needs it.

Surely sounds like fuel starvation. Check your connections properly and also have your fuel filter inspected for blockage.
