get your test light out and see if you have juice everywhere you're 'sposed to.
Sounds kinda like a loose connection, or frayed wire. Maybe inside the points cavity. Does your headlight burn when the bike craps out? If not, loose ground or battery cable's likely the culprit.
While you're pokin' around in there, see if the advance weights came unwound.
