i was just driving down the trail yesterday and it just died on me and wouldnt start in P but if i put it in H and held the brake it would start eventually! it was sputtering on the way back to the truck...but all day when i would turn it would die on me sometimes and when i start it back up it would back fire....

Really common problem for the keychain to catch on something when turning, especially to the right and turning it off just far enough to die, the going back to the run position when you straighten out so you don't catch it.

thats exactly what it is! the next day it ran just fine.....i think the backfiring caused the spark plug to malfunction some way and after sitting up and dry out or whatever it works just fine! next time i ride i will update...... but i started thinking about it and it only died when turning right....thanks...
