Question about 2004 Suzuki Savage 650
Starting you could ride about 30 minutes and now about 5 minutes, bike jumps a little and then dies. try to start nothing, you still have power and headlights but will not turn over, let sit for 10 minutes and it will start right up and all over again.this is a 2005 650 savage, thanks!
Sounds like vaporlock. Try insulating the fuel line, especially around hot engine parts.

try the connections on the starter and the solenoid they could have corrosion which will affect the starter.if they are corroded just clean them up with a wire brush.

200° is quite warm...
If the engine wont turn over, probabily you have a bad battery, a bad starter or a bad starter relay, or bad connections.
A hot engine has more compression. If the full battery power doesn't reach the starter it won't turn over...

It's most likely the connection to the battery. The screws dont tighten in well and you get the famous clicking....I replaced the stock philips screws with a hex bolt and after two years of trying to solve the problen have been starting everytime for the past year no problems. Another gie away is the intermitant starting problem gets worse when wet.

Most bikes require that your battery be in goo condition in order to run. They actually use the battery as part of the ignition circuit. So if your battery is completely dead it will drag your ignition circuit down.
Recommendation: Remove your battery, charge it and/or get it tested.
Secondly, if your battery checks out as being good, the only other thing I could think of it being is your charging system. That being comprised of a stator and a voltage regulator. These are semi expensive parts so, once you get past the battery check, I'd advise you to either get a manual for your bike, and some testing equipment (if your mechanically inclined), or take you bike to a reputable cycle shop and have them check it out. This way your not replacing good parts trying to track down the problem.
