Start from the fuel system as it does not seem to be getting enough fuel when needed.

You need a dealer, there is a real problem going on here, way over the head of any home do it yourselfer. The main reason is the special tools required to interface with the control modules that are throwing these codes

2006 triumph america cuts out, seems to lose power, run on 1 cylinder, have had 20,000 major service, carb serviced, tank checked (no debris). Cold, warm, or after rideing hard the problem can crop up

IT sounds like fuel starvation has it got a vacume petrol tap if so it could be that not letting petrol through sometimes or the vacume pipe is split or kinked or squashed

Runs until I start cutting something, then turns off.

Remove the muffler and clean the spark arrestor screen. Check the top edge of the exhaust port in the cylinder for any carbon build-up. Scrape it clean if necessary (but don't scratch the piston or cylinder wall). Check the air cleaner for plugging. Turn both H and L mixture screws in the carburetor CW to their stops (lightly), the back out 1-1/2 turns each. Start the engine and warm it up, then open the throttle. Turn the H needle CW until the engine speeds up, but continues to '4-stroke' yet starts '2-stroking' immediately when you begin cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L for smoother idle, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle' when accelerated. Adjust idle speed to just stop the chain from turning. Make sure the chain is being oiled properly. Hope this helps!
