Sounds like it could be the ignition plate. one easy trick is to use a heat gun or a hair dryer. Heat up the plate when the bike is cold and see if you can recreate the issue be heating up the plate. The motor gives off alot of heat down there. Check for the rubber or epoxy looking material to be soft. If it is bad replace with a Dyna ignition. It's stupid proof on the install side as well as dependable. Other brands don't tend to have the stamina like the Dyna does.

Runs well for half an hour then stops. Have bypassed the fuel line with auxiliary, but this did not hep. Any ideas?

sometimes when they get hot the spark plug or coil will fail. replace the spark plug and try it if that don't work you might want to check on replacing the coil. as they get older with high temperatures the coil and spark plug will fail at high temps. fairly easy to replace.

Craftsman push mower will shut off after using it for over a half an hour like it overheated and it won't start again until it cools down, any suggestions?

If it dies try removing the gas cap. If the gas cap vent is plugged it will do what you described. The other area to check is the coil or what Briggs sometimes calls an armature. You can buy a cheap spark tester at an auto parts store. When it dies put the spark tester on and if there is no spark then that is probably from the coil failing when it gets hot.

My Cub Cadet 2130 has a Kohler Command 12.5 Hp engine. I have had a recent problem where if I shut the engine off after running for a half hour or so it won't restart. Today it died on it's own...

You most likely need to replace the ignition module. You should find it under the shoud next to the flywheel, just follow the spark plug wire.

12.5 hp craftsman runs fine for only the first 1/2 hour or so

You are so right, the coil has a small crack the opens up as it heats up. You know the old saying as metal heats it expands this causes a open circuit.

2004 Yamaha V-star 650, wont start.

change the coil you may not think it got hot but sometimes a coil can overheat on the inside just enough to break the copper winding. when riding hard slow down for a couple of miles to give everything time to get back to normal temps before shutting it off
