Default help quad runs like crap!

I have a 99 kawaski praire 2wd 400 quad...

I use it very little, only for yard work and stuff
for the past couple years it would run great for about 10-15 min and then when it got warm it would just spit and sputter and backfire...and usually die, even when feathering the throttle or having it wide open...wait a couple minutes and it would run again for 4-5 minand then do it again

now it wont even run for 2 min...

carbs are cleaned and look good, i did find a bad plug wire end...repaired the plug wire and replaced the end (wire a little shorter now)

and there is no change....

I dont want to take this to a dealer, any ideas?

I am thinking the bad wire caused the coil to get weak and it breaks down when it gets hot???

any other ideas? am I way off my thinking?
