sportsman 800 EFI Engine Problem

I have a 2005 sportsman 800 EFI. The engine will start and run fine at full power, then it will just quit like its been starved out of fuel. When that happens, the engine will not start for about 15 minutes. If I let it sit for 15-20 minutes the engine starts up and runs great as if nothing has happened. Has anyone seen this problem?

I had this problem with my 06 800EFi. Mine woulkd only do this when motor was hot ( Slow riding on trails and when working it in the mud) also when mine would die it would make a bubbling sound like the gas was boilling. my 800 was running hot. so i moved rad to top of front rack. and cleaned all mud from rad. Have not had this happen any more after the rad relocation.
