Thought i had bad fuel so i removed and cleaned fuel injector and did a spray test "ok" checked fuel pressure @ 40 psi book says 43 psi drained and flushed fuel system. Bike runs great cold but after a while 30 min or so idle starts acting up and finally Eng loses 90% of power and no throttle response let cool down completly and runs fine dont trust it to try any more long range trips. my 2015 wildcat trail did a similer thing when the pick up coil went bad. Any ideas out there anyone have this issue?

Check your fuel pressure when it dies.

Listen to the fuel pump when you turn the key. Does sound like a smooth whir or a grinding?

Quite a few around that year had bad pumps.
