Check for a steady supply of fuel to the carb. Could be a blocked or pinched fuel line. Very possible that the float needle and seat are worn, causing the valve to remain closed or partially closed. When this happens the fuel bowl runs out of fuel causing the engine to die. Then fuel trickles back in while sitting and slowly fills the bowl again, allowing the engine to restart. Also be sure that the float level is set properly and that the float pivots freely. Most small engine carb floats are set to shut off the fuel when the float rises in the bowl to where the flat surface on the float is parallel to the bowl mounting surface. If the float is set close to this, don't try to adjust it. If your float needle has viton (rubber like) tip, be sure that it is not deformed. Never press on the needle because it will deform the tip, causing the valve to stick open or closed. Many times you can buy just the float needle and seat either OEM or aftermarket.

Hi im having problems with my 99 Fazer 600 (15k). After about 30 mins of motorway riding the revs die for a few seconds and then kick back in, everything electrical seems to carry on working. It will run...

First thing I would do is try draining the carb floatbowls incase you have water or dirt in the bowls and when you crack open the throttle it's drawing water/dirt into the jets.
have you checked the plugs? in the haynes manual as 10K-Ohms @20c
When was the last time the carbs were balanced?

hope this helps

My fazer 600 w plate when i give it a good hand full it burbles and dies and then wont start for a good 3 mins when it restarts it seems to have more power this also has started to happen when riding...

If the carbs were jetted for a different pipe,and you have changed it back to standard that will cause your symptoms,if it was doing the same before you changed the pipe your carbs need cleaning

Hard to keep running

how long has the bike been sitting?? It sounds like your carbs are blocked up and need to be cleaned and synchronized.
good luck
