97 RXC 400 cuts out

I need some advice.

I just bought a used 1997 RXC 400. It was stalling out more easily than I would hope when I took it out on the trial the other day. Then several times on the road now it cuts out, just losing all power; down shifting seems to kick it and get the power back. It also felt like it was sputtering a lot while driving down the interstate.

Any idea what the common causes to this are?

I read some of Chasmanian's comments on Oct 22, 2007 at http://www.topix.com/forum/motorcycles/ktm/T1...

Does this apply to my RXC400 or is it designed more for the road than an EXC. I really want an all around fun off-road/trail bike as well as a commuter, what is the best thing to do with this bike for that purpose?
