Angry Bike cuts out

I have a 2004 750 and as I take off down the road, periodically the bike cuts out. After about 15 minutes I am able to start up again. ?

Couple of things..
If it sputters and cuts out at higher RPMs then check the vent tube in the right ear. It could be bottoming out and not getting the right air flow.
Another option is the gas tank venting and this one usually allows a restart after the bike has sat and allowed the pressure to equalize. Two vent areas to check: the gas cap vent and the vent tube from the back of the tank
