Hi there and welcome to our site.
Usually it's customary/polite to introduce yourself before asking for help.
With regards to your problem, have you taken it to a garage to see what they can do?
If I had to guess, I'd say it's probably just that.
As in, either, faulty kill switch.
This could be any number of things.
If you've broken the loom anywhere, it could be the that the signal wire is simply not reaching from the CDI. So it sounds electrical.
@Calum thanks Calum have to take it to the garage for this one really do appreciate you help tho cheers
It's probably something simple, like a broken wire.
Easiest way to check is just to wiggle the wires whilst its running until it dies.
@Calum ok mate will try that it does seem like a broken wire because the bike starts and rides fine then cut out like kill switch has been hit have to wait couple of minutes then startor motor works fine and she starts again ????

@gardiner-yamaha Welcome to the club, post some pics of your bike for us all to see dude.
@gardiner-yamaha You may be surprised.
I had a similar issue with my Wemoto ignition barrel. The connector completely corroded and it started fine, but would cut out seemingly randomly.
So don't rule it out. It'll be some electrical gremlin, you just need to have a nosey.
@Calum will have a look mate but looks like there a new ignition barrel in there to be fair so really do think it’s the kill switch got a good mechanic mate having a look on Monday so hopefully solve the problem soon
The kill switch wasn't the fault of my issue. I've still got the Wemoto ignition barrel. It ended up being the connector block. Just disintegrated.
The point I am trying to make is that it could be something simple like that.
@Calum ok mate will definitely have a good look all round connection does make sense to be fair thanks mate
