500 dies after warming up

I have a 2004 ATP (Sportsman) 500 HO and it dies after it warms up. The fan may come on once or twice then it shuts down. Can restart but dies right away. Let it cool down and we're back going but stops again once it heats up. No hot light.

New "etc", carb (needed it), oil, antifreeze already done.

Where to go? Fan resistance? Temp sensor?

I have a very similar problem. Every summer I go through it, ya I know I should have fixed it by now. The problem is I don't know what is wrong with it. I can see that the inline filter doesn't have much fuel in it, so I pressure up the tank by blowing in it. I try not to let people see me do this ha ha. Then I choke it and try to start it. Sometimes I have to repeat that a few times. I wish I knew what the problem was, so I could fix it.
