Jack, understood about the air filter and oiling. I have a set of SHA jets on the way to me. I will jet lower and see what, if anything, improves.
Again, thanks for the advice on the coil. That seems to have resolved the initial issues (dying out after brief ride). I remembered someone on a forum in the past saying that your problems are "always electrical 90% of the time.....". I should have remembered and started there with my troubleshooting.
