Bike stalls after riding at high speed

As I am riding at 65-70 MPH, my bike chokes out and seems to run as if it is not getting gas. The engine is running hot at the time but not overheating. I have to pull over and glide to a stop. The motor shuts down by itself. After waiting three to five minutes, it will start up again, running on all 4 cylinders. It does not do this if I am riding through town. HELP & thank you.:doh:

Welcome to the forum.

First take a flashlight and check the inside of your fuel tank.

If you have bits and pieces floating along the bottom.

It is time to flush and fill your tank.

Second check your fuel filter and replace.

If it continues after that, then check the books and see if you can find the diameters for your petcocks "O"rings and pick up a couple vibram "O"rings, and flush your tank screen. I did mine with a brake bleeder tool and was able to achieve enough vacuum on the tube to pull the screen clean. I had approximately 5 oz of Berryman's B-12 to 3 gallons of gas at the time to help clean and disolve any solids. I placed a cone shaped piece on the end of the hose and pumped up to achieve vacuum, once everything broke loose, I siphoned through the tube in to a 5 gallon bucket covered with a sheet of cheese cloth as a filter. I chose to siphon for 2 tanks, but that is just me. The clean 5 gallon bucket allowed me to reuse the fuel.

Welcome to the forum. Wish I could help, but I'm intimidated by my fridge, and all it does is sit there and hum.
