Question runs for while then dies

I have a 05 phoenix 200. starts up runs fine, after a while it dies sometimes backfiring. I've tried a different rugulator box, sparkplug, coil wire, and a new cdi box with no luck. It will run for a few minutes after it sets, but same thing over and over again. It will also set and idle all day, but when you hit the gas to take off it dies. any suggestions.

did you check to make sure you have good fuel flow to the carb? you could have a plugged petcock or fuel filter which flows enough to fill the carb bowl but not enough to keep up with the running engine.

What made you think it was an electrical problem? does it spark if you pull the plug and crank over after it dies?

that's possible, and many times electrical parts fail like that. However a simple spark test will tell the tail. I hate throwing parts at things without running through all the diagnostics. always start with the simple stuff. If a motor doesn't run check the big three..

1) compression
2) fuel (in the right amount)
3) spark (at the right time)

how long does your engine run before cutting out? and does it just shut off, or sputter and then finally die?
