Coil or ignition module most likely. download the factory service manual for it so you can trouble shoot it - you can also check out badweatherbikers - they have a good buell tubeframe section there.

SOURCE: misses at cruizing speeds when engine gets warm. accels ok

Sounds like drumbanger is on the right track. If this bike ran ok in the past and you have not made exhaust or intake changes, the low speed jet may be partially plugged or you have developed an intake air leak. If this problem has always been there or you have changed something, consider going up a size or 2 on the low speed jet.

Check if the charging system works ok.
At idle with lights off, you should see 13.5-14.5V on battery's terminals and 0.5V less with high beams on, at idle speed as well as at 4000rpm.
Use a fresh good verified battery to take the readings.

Engine shut off at 4000rpm


this sounds like an electronic problem. the control unit thinks about 50000 cycles in a second. it's bound that there could be a problem. a second hand black box or computer box should fix your propblem. goodluck

Engine cuts out with clutch engaged.


idle adjust?
there SHOULD be an adjuster under the seat or gastank within easy reach. Clockwise to increase rpm, ccl to decrease rpm. idle around 1400rpm when engine is at normal operating temp. Good luck!
