changed spark plug and it has been perfect for 3 years now
the old plug looked clean - must have been grounding out when warm ?

a friend had similar thing with his generator

wort a try - plug is cheap !!
Also change the spark plug cap - I had a similar thing after about 10,000 miles on my 06 400 exc and it was the plug cap, it looked fine, but must have been tracking to ground.
