I don't have much history on the machine prior to the DJ kit. Bought the Bayou, went on one ride with no problems, then put in the DJ kit.
I am beginning to lean towards a stuck float valve. Once fully sealed off, the warm tank is allowing the fuel to expand.
Went out for a night ride last night and it died 4 times. It only happens when hitting some rough bumps under heavy power. I think what is happening is after being under full throttle for a bit, the level in the bowl drops a bit (as much as it possibly could under full throttle) and when hitting a big bump allows the float valve to get stuck.
When it does die, I remove the fuel line from the tank, fire it up, after it starts to lean out and cough, suddenly all is back to normal.
If I ride easy through woop sections - it runs all night.
I plan on putting the stock jetting back in today. Also, for kicks, coat the bottom of the tank with heat tape. If there is a way to make and fit a heat shield between the tank and motor, that will be done.
If it happens after that, ebay carb will be next.
