    What mods are done to it? Has it been re jetted? Need more info.

    Have you checked for fuel contaminants?

    I do not know if it has been jetted for the hyper-charger, it has Vance and Hines exhaust system and has been standing for some months before I bought it and I had to replace the battery, thats as much as I can tell you at the moment, thanks for your help and responses.

    I would first open up the carb and see what jetting is in there. The low should be about a #46 and the high speed should be about a #180/185.

    Runs ok till gets hot, then shuts down. Cools off runs again?
    Sounds electrical componet heating up and shuting down? Coil, crank sensor, module?
    May be way off base here?
