Have you checked the ground lead?
Make sure it is clean, it runs down and bolts to the top right hand side of the crank case.
Sometimes what happens is, that lead gets grime on it, oil or corrosion.. and it doesn't make good contact. The lights, spark ETC load the crank case and frame full of DC.. when you shut the bike off the dc cant flow through the starter so it won't turn over.
after a while the dc trickles out it will let the bike start again.
Hope thats it and it works for you, good luck!!
P.S. how is he liking his ace?? Awsome bike, I have had mine since 1999, and it not about to go anywhere!!

The turn signals are controlled by a "turn signal controller" that is located just under the dash on your bike. If heat is the problem, you may have to purchase a new unit.
To test, see if you can get the cover off that covers the split in your tanks just below the dash. You should be able to see the unit with that removed. If so, buy a small can of electronic component cooler at at Radio Shack or somewhere. Ride the bike until the turn signals quit. Give the controller a quick shot of the component cooler. If the signals immediately start back working, this is indeed your problem. You can either try to figure a way to keep the unit cooler or replace the unit. Cost is about $150 last time I purchased one. Good Luck.

It sounds more like a fuel problem to me. If I had to guess, I'd say that for some reason your bike has started to run lean. The lean mixture is causing your engine to run hot. The heat from the is "perculating" the fuel in your float bowl and causing it not to start. I've seen it before on race cars.
The mixture on your bike may be running lean for any fo several reasons. You could have trash in one of the jets in the carb or you could have a vacuum leak. I'd put my money on the later. There is a hose that comes off the backside and feeds vacuum to the VOES switch. Make sure this hose is intact and doesn't have any cracks in it. I'd also replace the intake gaskets at the heads and the carb seal provided the carb is the original CV carb.
If the carb has been changed to something else, there could be other problems as well. Also, make sure your not running gasoline that has a greater than 10% ethanol mixture in it. The greater the percentage of ethanol (alcohol) the leaner the engine will run.
