Sounds like it could be the pulse generator... usually it takes a little heat to build up before it fails and then when it cools down it might refire.

If you can trace down the connection for the PG (IIRC it's under the faux tank on the front left side) disconnect it, connect your multimeter to the PG side of the connector, put setting on low AC voltage. Crank the engine, you should see .2-.4ACvolts during cranking. If you don't then it's bad.
