    So ive been having an issue with my engine wanting to stall out on me after ive been riding for about a half hour. Ive got an 05 883 thats bored to 1200 and I have a feeling maybe its just reaching a maximum temperature which is causing it to shutdown. Any ideas on what this issue may be, or how to fix it would be great. Thanks! -Andrew

    The bike runs fine when I start it, and for at least 15 minutes after its still fine. But once I kick it into first after ive been running it for a while it wants to die out.

    Recheck the adjustment on the push rods if you used adjustable push rods.
