So, I'm getting my bike back out after being stored for the winter and now it's not running right. I was able to start it up and let it warm up, but when I actually went for my first ride, I noticed something wrong almost immediately.

In 1st gear I could accelerate up to about 6 or 7k RMPs and then I just completely lost power and was unable to accelerate. When I shifted to 2nd, the same thing happend at about 4k RPMs and by 3rd gear was completely useless. I can nurse it up to about 35 mph, but it really only accelerates normally up to about 25 mph. Where should I start and what should I do?

P.S. I am very mechanically able, but do not have much experience at all (and this is my first bike which I've only had for about 9 months), so if you tell me to do something, I'll probably need instructions of some sort. Thanks in advance
