- did you perform any maintenance or add any accessories before this started?

- was the bike parked for an extended period?

- tell me everything you can about when this started.

- tell me if you are losing spark or fuel........does it quit like you hit the kill switch......or does it sputter like if you shut off the petcock?

tell me everything you can.

Thanks for your time found the problem the key ignition u/s yes it had been sitting for three yearsHave a great day
Expert:  Steve replied 10 months ago.

no, you didn't.

there is no way the ignition switch can fail to allow the engine to run for 3-5 minutes then shut it off.

let me know what you are ready to find the actual problem.

I suggest you do that BEFORE it leaves you stranded in an area with no cell phone coverage......alone.
