Sounds like fuel starvation. the vent pipe from the tank may be kinked, easily done when replacing the tank. Or there may be a second pipe that goes to a filter used in us models. that can block. ( throw it away). My tiger developed the same problems and the mechanic just pulled the second pipe off and all was well. The way to find out is to ride around with fuel filler cap undone...

as grey as gandalf but not quite as old
