My bike kicks up immediately. However, it will start right up but continue the sluggish/hiccup symptons until cool. If I let it cool it will run great again until it gets, presumably, hot again.

Points as far as I know, haven't been in that side very much at all.

I'd describe the symptoms as loss of a bit of power and then hiccups. One here and there or a couple in a row.

The floats themselves or the bowl? The bowl had gas in it but the floats seemed without gas. I presume, being floats, they aren't to have gas in them.

Any ideas will help. Thanks. It's all for the experience and knowledge.

Absolutely you could have a coil heating up and failing, but normally the coil must cool before it sparks again. You have points on that bike? If so, how about the condenser? My experience with seizures is the piston sticks in the bore, suddenly. There have been times when a motor has tightened up and seized, It feels like someone is dragging you backward as you try to accelerate, You can tell by both the feel and sound that the motor is seizing. It doesn't sound like what you are describing to me. Definitely check electrical, if it has a condenser replace it unless it's new. It sounds like the plug is fouling but if that where the case it most likely would not restart so easily or at all. Did you float assembly have any liquid in them? If they are leaking it could effect the float level and richen it up, Just throwing stuff out there, hope something helps.
