Broke down

On the way home tonight ,sat at the lights and the bike stopped running , I hit the start button it rolled over ok but would not go.
Checked the fuel and there was plenty there, pulled off the vacuum hose then the fuel hose, no fuel came out.
Shook the bike back and forward ,hit the start button it hunted then fired up and ran in a fashion then stopped , tried again and it started with the throttle open closed the the throttle and it sputtered with a bit of black smoke out of the exhaust then died (repeat)
Eventually it ran enough to get me home if I held it at 2000 revs at the lights

It is a 2000 with 8000 miles on the clock

Any help will be appreciated
