Question about 2004 Suzuki LS 650 Savage
Well you need to verify the stuff already mentioned. Sparkplug, and coil etc.
The problem is likely the the coil and just needs to be replaced.
If the plug show signs of lean mix, it could have been that way for a long time (big headache).
If you just got the bike you need to kown something about troubleshooting to isolate the issue.
Makesure the oil is up. - too low could lead to a scrapped engine.
Makesure the oilpump is working.- no pump means no oil moving will lead to a scrapped engine.
Makesure you have the correct oil by doing an oil change. - bad, wrong, really old oil could mess the filter(clogged). Check filter for grit, metal, cream - if I have to explain why... then you need to give up trying to fix it yourself and pay/pay/pay for someone who has the skills to fix it for you.
If you must do it yourself, buy the Clymer manual and read.
Search the net and learn.
Get a friend to help show you how to troubleshoot the issue and fix it.

After it cools it starts back up without a problem? What is the color of the center electrode insulator on the spark plug? If the bike is overheating due to a lean air fuel mixture, the electrode would be white or gray in color. If the bike continues to overheat make sure you fix the problem quick because your engine will probably lock up for good before too long. When the bike is HOT and it shuts down check for spark... I've had some ignition coils fail after getting hot.
