He i have a problem with my 94 nighthawk cb250, well about a week or two ago i was riding down a road at about forty and started to loose power and the bike died mid ride and i pulled in to a parking lot with the momentum. once parked i started it again and proceeded to my destination.later that night i was leaving and got about a quarter of a mile and it died again.then it started starting and only lasting as i revved then quite and started hearing a clicking when trying to start. after pushing for a while it would start and stay on when i proceeded with pressure on the throttle, once i would slow down it would die again. I think its ether the carb or the battery any help guys?

How old is the battery? Are the terminals clean and connections tight? Is it maintenance free, and if not, is the electrolyte up to the lline? Put the battery on a charger overnight and see if that alleviates the problem. Does it HOLD the charge? Then, with a voltmeter, check to see if the charging system is working: hook it to your battery, and see if revving the engine increases the voltage to around 13.5 - 14v and then levels off. If it fails to increase voltage with revs, or if the voltage continues to climb beyond 14 or so and to 16 or 19 v, then your charging system is defective.

Your symptoms could also be caused by a non-venting gas cap. If opening the gas cap allows the engine to restart, then I'd be looking in that direction.
