Default 1992 Yamaha TDM850 wont run

I am having issues with my new to me 1992 Yamaha TDM850 It was running great, been having a fun time riding it. However on Saturday morning I was just coming back from a ride. I just got off of 485 rode on some back roads for about 5 mins when I pulled into my neighborhood the bike would not "rev" up. Meaning I pulled the clutch in and coast around the turn let the clutch out and the engine "bogged" down.

The bike normally idles around 1500 rpm. Now it will only idle about 900 rpm. If I give it any gas at all it want to cut off. I let the bike sit for about 3 hours and came back to it and it started up like a champ idled perfectly at 1500 rpm but as soon as I tried to give it any gas it would bogg right down.

When traveling down the interstate I did not notice any problems. The rest of the ride was back roads and I never had any problems.

I am going to try and drain the gas and put new gas in it along with a little seafoam and see if it was some junk in the gas.

I wanted to get some assistance from you guys on what else I should be looking at.

Thanks in advance
