Default Please help fix my gasser 450 FSE cash reward !

I've lost hope of fixing this beast myself, spent over a grand trying and even took to a supposed respected garage and they couldn't sort it.
Symptoms (typical 400/450 early FSE 2003) won't start off the battery (brand new) will start from running car though. When running will cut out after around 1 min of idle, then won't start again.
Pretty much everything checked, replaced, etc etc

Any good mechanic recommendations or suggestions please let me know.
Cheers !

My suggestion would be to call David @ Biketech - he is exceptionally helpful and has encyclopaedic knowledge of Gas Gas bikes. 01225 765765.

Has the Throttle Position Sensor been reset (using the Motorbike Diagnostic Program by Magnetti Marelli)? That was my FSE400's starting and running problem. Worked great after that was done.
