your tank's gas cap vent, if stock, is malfunctioning....you do have a tank vent issue i'm betting. I know you said the vent is working properly but it's an intermittent problem that causes this.
replace the vent thingy with long hose and route into steering stem.
if you have this happen again, crack open the tank cap to get running again.

If your components look gummed soak them in carb/brake cleaner.
You might have lost one of your standpipes in the gastank which will then allow crud thorugh - it's happened to my bike where the main one came off, I ran out of gas, switched to reserve and was still out of gas because once it's off it allows the tank to drain to the reserve level without you knowing.
Look inside your tank when it's close to full, you might see the straw floating around.
Easy to glue back on - I used JB weld.
