700 engine stalls

sorry guys, Brand new and if I'm doing wrong let me know. I just bought a 2009 prowler 700 xtx. Engine cuts-out after you get it warm. It sounds like it is starved for fuel. I let it cool it starts right up and runs good tell it gets up to operating temp and will stall. Thanks for any help.

Pull your plug. What does it look like?

plug looks ok, not oil fouled or fuel soaked. I replaced with a new one. What should I be looking for? Thanks for the reply

Welcome to the site! Will your Prowler restart after it stalls? And what RPM is it idling at? Do you have a service manual available? Valve clearance to tight could cause it to stall, as far as plug reading you want a light tan color on the porcelain. If it is white you are to lean, starving for fuel. Go to the frequently asked questions on this forum for more information.

X2 on this, although I've never done it on mine. It should have been done once the motor was broken in, but it's probably something that rarely gets done.

I'd also check your air filter. I'd pull the spark arrestor and check it (just a maintenance item that gets overlooked). I'm assuming your model is carburated. How does the choke work on these? Is it electric or manual?
