2007 Honda Rancher TRX420 4x4, Cuts out above half throttle similar to rev limiter

So I rebuilt this engine completely with all factory parts. Transmission was damaged, so customer wanted to replace crank while I had it apart. After putting everything back together, everything worked great. Customer picked up bike and ran it for about two months (he uses it daily for work in crawfish ponds). Brought it back to me because it was overheating and would rev up to about half throttle and the cut out over and over while holding the throttle at anything above half throttle. Radiator was plugged. Everything with ignition tests good. I never loose fire while this is happening. ECM is brand new, fuel pump is new, injector is new, swapped TP Sensor with known good one. Fuel pressure is at 51psi at idle and its hard to tell because of vibration, but seems to drop to about 42psi while its cutting in and out at high rev. Any ideas on what could cause this?

The dropping off of pressure at the same time it's missing , might be a dirty filter.. fuel filter. Even though the pressure's good at idle, it might not have a good flow. It always pays to check flow and pressure, because you can have one without the other.

So the fuel pump I replaced was aftermarket. I only replaced the pump itself and used original can. It came with new filter and seals. I'm not sure how the pressure regulator works on this system. It is only a spring valve. So what exactly tells the ECM when to cut the fuel pump on and off? Timing is set and valves are adjusted correctly. I guess the next step is to just replace the whole fuel pump canister. I will place the order for the new one and update once its installed. I am pretty certain that its a fuel pressure issue. Just not sure if its an electrical issue causing the pump to cut off when its throttled up or something else.

Are you sure it's not running in safe mode since the overheating issue ? Some of those things, if there's a problem that could damage the engine, they restrict the revs until you've fixed the problem, and in a lot of American stuff, taken the bike to a dealer to cancel the safe mode.

I suppose you have read the manual regarding this problem ..

      MGoing to apologize in advance to those that have a soft spot for wolves. They are definitely not my favorite species of animal.  They continue to grow bolder and bolder even with the population exploding all around us in this wide open valley floor. This valley is approximately 40 miles long by 35 miles wide. Was once mostly agricultural but over the last 25+ years, the kids of long time property owners have sold to the highest bidder.  Developers buying up small farms and ranches for millions of dollars and eating away at the local agricultural way of life, destroying the rural Montana I, and many natives, once knew, covering up perfect farm land with urban sprawl, never again to produce a grain of wheat or barley,  potato,  canola seed, or any crop of any kind ever  again.  Lining developers pockets, raping and pillaging another rural area and leaving the infrastructure in a colossal mess and the local cities trying to figure out how to pay for the improvements to move the traffic, overloading an already overloaded tax base.
      FINALLY, after years of farmers and ranchers lobbying and legislation, they finally opened up a season to hunt the destructive and devastating consequences of the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone National Park. These animals have become a huge problem outside of the park boundary. Did the powers that be actually think these killing machines would stay inside the park boundaries? Really? Hmmmmm, not the sharpest tools in the shed. Their population has exploded over their reintroduction into the park in 1995. They released 41 wolves into different areas in Yellowstone Park, then made it illegal to kill any of them that came out of the park boundaries. Pretty much leaving farmers and ranchers defenseless in protecting their livelihood without becoming a criminal. If they did ever shoot one the investigation process has been so stringent and stressful a lot of them have done the 3 S's. Shoot, Shovel, and Shutup! There are now over 1500 wolves in western Montana, over 1100 in Idaho, over 400 in Wyoming, and almost 150 in Eastern Washington. Who knows how many have migrated back into Canada.
      They finally delisted the wolves and opened up a hunting season on them, something that should have been done years ago before they decimated our elk population. 
      A friend of ours was able procure a tag and was able to fill it yesterday morning. The wolf was down in the middle of the valley floor stalking his cattle on his family ranch, definitely deserved to be taken out. Personally would like to see more taken down, they have gone well beyond repopulation with this program and have spent millions on tracking and thousands of man hours, colossal waste. Glad to see another one gone.

      Hello all thanks for the add. Just joining the quad game.  Was giving this gem by a family member and jest a few hours after getting it in the garage it fell apart on my.  92 Honda 4trax I’m gonna try to bring back to life.

      New to the quads my neighbor just gave me an old Suzuki quadrunner 230. It has been sitting on his trailer in the back 40 for 7 years since it last ran so I figured it would be a good winter project.  Not sure of the year I believe late 80’s 
      I am sure I will have lots of questions but for now just searching the forums for info.

      Hey fellas, I've been referring to this forum a bunch over the years , but finally needed to create an account for some help,, so this is my first post. I'm working on a friend's 06 Arctic Cat 700efi that has no spark whatsoever and am kinda at a loss. To begin with, he had tried to fix it himself so he had replaced alot already...I know, I know lol. This is what has been done; New plug twice, new coil twice with new one ohming out great, new stator, new rectifier,  and new starter solenoid. 
      .    The biggest frustration is that I've got no codes. ECU shows that I'm in neutral and my brake safety switch works. I also show 12.5v at the tilt sensor pin on ecu which I assume is correct and then if u flip, then u lose voltage. Am I right, or no? Only other things I can think to do is replace Crank position sensor, get a peak voltage meter and read my peak voltages, or replace ecm which obviously is last resort.

      I also verified the pulse coil. Thank you in advance
