2006 TRX500FM When it heats up, it shuts down, cools off you can restart.
No radiator, just an oil cooler, plenty of oil. Please help.

Sounds like your fan isn't coming on an keeping your motor cooled down like it should,

If you play in the mud alot you need to make sure your oil cooler is washed out and the fins on your jug isn't full of baked on mud, Plus you might want to think about relocated your oil cooler to your rack and put a fan on it as well and it wouldn't hurt to put a switch inline so you can cut your fan on when your are riding slow so it will help keep it cooled down

The fan comes on at 375 degrees.Fan shuts off at 350 degrees.
350 degrees seems about the normal operating temp.

Two questions..After it shuts down does it still have spark? After it shuts down if you remove the gas cap will it restart and run fine?

Agreed with Saber I was thinking vapor locking or a sticking needle and seat
