    maintenance has been kept up very well, I was on it tonight 6/22/09 it ran for about 5 min then died I let cool down for 2-3 min and started it up it died right away, started again and when it started to die I put the throttle on idle and it kept running if I idle up it would die in a few sec. I also cleaned the tank, lines, plug, carb bowl, and checked the fuel shut off switch and it workes fine

Normal maintenance been applied to this rider ? Filters, lube, cleanings ? This sounds like an electrical issue (component hot), or a vacuum in the fuel tank. Next time it 'stops' open the fuel tank up and listen to any air 'whooshing' in.

    Looks like you might have a fuel cut off solenoid (electrical switch) that COULD be causing an issue if you think its fuel related and not an electrical (sealed) ignition component. Have you visually verified that there is nothing in the fuel tank at the fuel outlet? And it wasn't under vacuum ? Fuel filter clear ?

    If this was a sudden onset problem, I have to lean towards a clog in the fuel system. Could also be the fuel switch (if you have that). Hard to say for sure w/o putting my hands on it.

Black smoke? Sounds like carburetion or valves. Does choking the unit help when it acts up? If it does, carburetion is your problem
