    try taking it to the yamaha dealer and tell them that you want a check up on your cylinder heads and valvs system
    i think it might be a problem that your engine is starting cold running cold and then suddenly getting hot.

    if it starts and runs fine for 15 mins then ur carbs are fine but it is possible that ur muffler could be gettin clogged. see if ur model has a cat converter . the 1200s are known for this problem. after 100 hrs or so they take a crap n the ski starts running like skit.

    Theres no cat in 700 or 800 and no way for an exhaust to get clogged.

    Also just get the carbs rebuilt. Its 4 years old, I usually rebuild mine every other year just as an added insurance!

    Carbs are always suspect! and so is the check valve for the fuel vent
