    2010 Dragon 800 Switchback Stalls

    My 2010 800 Switchback stalls after warming up. To the point that it completely it wont move. After turning off and letting cool for 5 or 10 minutes, it will run almost normally for another 15 until it slowly stalls out and dies again. Thoughts? And thanks!

    Appreciate the direction. Changing the fuel filter can never be a bad idea. But unfortunately after changing, ran for about 20 minutes (up to 45 mph) this morning and problem persisted. Bogs way down at full throttle. After 20 minutes, stalled completely. Cooled down for 10 minutes and safely limped it home. Temperature never climbed over 122°F. Using 97 octane fuel with 104 octane boost every fill up.

    Does the engine actually stall and shut off? Or does the machine stop moving? Just trying to rule out a clutch or driveline issue.

    I would ensure all your fluids are topped up.

    Machine stops moving because it feels like it is not getting fuel. If I give it any throttle at the point it would die. So I either shut it down, let it cool down or the engine does die because I killed it. When I start cold, it will easily hit 70mph plus in that first 20-30 minute window before the stalling starts. So I would rule out clutch and driveline but I could not be positive.
    Thanks for the interest and help!

    Might be a fuel pump or injector problem, although those would probably throw codes and make the check engine light blink.

    122* doesn't seem very hot. Bad coolant temp sensor telling the ecm something isn't right so it goes into limp mode or dies? Have you checked for any stored codes?

    ^^^Check the accuracy of the coolant temp sensor. ( I'm assuming it's an efi engine)
    My next step would be the coil or stator.. they get funny if there is a small break in a circuit that can be fine when cold but turn into an open circuit when heated up.
