May have a vapor lock in the fuel line. Rerouting the line may help. If you are in a jam, try putting ice on the fuel lines, I know, it's gonna be tough but it will solve a vapor lock.

Engine Vibration and noise after riding awhile

Maybe it is not firing properly on one cylinder. Have you changed plugs? It may also be that the coil is breaking down when hot. You might be able to check this with a coils tester if anyone has one anymore. Suzuki used to have a very good one. Very expensive Suzuki tool though. Cheaper to try a new coil. Also you might check HT wires when hot if the foregoing does not fix it. Next place I would go is try to isolate which cylinder it is and check/replace the fuel injector. This is assuming no mechanical faults. However you have POWER VISION and so it could also be something errant there.

Wont start at all

If you have no light you can't even hot wire it sounds like the ignition switch is bad in the start and run positions.

You're certain its actually firing on all 4 plug wires?

My bike runs real good and starts easy but just

Sound like the magneto is not charging the battery properly, and your bike is then running off the battery while running, sending it flat.

To test this, start the bike, then remove the battery from the bike, it should be able to run without the battery connected. Make sure the positive lead does not touch metal on the bike.

Using a multimeter, check that you have 13.8 volts at the battery while the bike is running, anything less than this and your bike is not charging the battery properly.

You need to get some new float needles, and have the carbs cleaned and the float heights set correctly.

It wont stay running in stalls out from time to time

Change the fuel filter,clean the carb jets again,and replace the air filter.This should take care of it but sometimes when they sit for awhile,you will need to clean the carbs numerous time as the gunk in the tank continues to wash down into the carbs.

If battery is running down. The engine may not be charging the battery. Check charging system. If running on battery, the bike will run fine for awhile then die as the battery can no longer provide spark to the engine. If charging system is less than 13.0 volts could be a ad stator or regulator. Make sure the battery posts are clean, a bad ground can cause problems too.
