Well it could be many things but check your ETC switch at the throttle on the handelbar. When it quits and won't refire turn it all the way off and then try again if it restarts then its more then likley the ETC switch.If your throttle cable is to loose or way out of adjustment it will shut it down as it is a safety device.After that you move to fuel or other electrical connections. Also your machine looks like my 97 as far as the oil and fuel I run only Hightest and AmZoil Synthetic interceptor oil these machines are oil injected so there should be no pre mixing required. A great little machine very capable off road and pretty fast 65 to 70 box stock. hope this helps.
