Sounds a bit like what happened to my 525EXC when the stator died, although it started off subble at high revs, and gradually become less inclined to rev until it would not run at all.

It still had spark, it just had a very weak spark.

I had the original stator rewound for $75, problem solved.

If it doesn't solve your mate's drama, at least he'll know he's go a good stator.

Otherwise could it be fueling? getting lean when hot? (stab in the dark), some sensor not working? thematic-valve not opening causing motor to heat up too much?
It pumps one way and then it pumps the other...
you have to know what you're doing with these machines and wear gloves
Current rides: 125 trially, 200EXC, 250EXC, another 250EXC & XR70
