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 !!
I had same problem and solution with a lawn mower(honda) and a new dr650. New plugs fixed problem. DR only had about 1k miles with factory plugs. It would stutter when going down road and die sometimes at stop signs. Emptied tank of fuel and float bowl checking for water in gas. Still did it after cleaning. Put new ngk plugs in it and it ran perfect. The ND plugs i took out looked fine but they must have been bad.
