I have a hond fourtrax 300 trx from 1997. I bought it used. It runs great for a while, then heats up and dies. Sits for a while and I can start it again, has a dead battery but i dont think that is the issue. Could the oil not being changed for a while heat it up and cause it to die? The oil looks clean. It has sat for a whild but Ive drained the tank and put fresh fuel and stableizer in the fuel. Any comments or advise would be appreciated! Thanks

Welcome to the forums. The Fourtrax 300 don't have a fan unless someone added it as an option. It don't have an oil cooler either.

I would test the ignition coil. It might be getting hot and dying. You can test it with an ohmmeter.
