Does it cut out when the reverse light flashes? If so then your reverse switch is dong the same thing a lot of 2007 700 Grizz's have done. I fixed mine by grounding out the reverse switch. There is a thread on here that gives great instructions on how to ground it out. You will loose the reverse light but no more cutting out. And you can run full throttle reverse with this mod also.

mine did that for a while but it would cut out when the light would flash and all it needed to fix it was a little dielectric grease on the spark plug boot that was like my warning that it was time to grease everything agian

I had the same thing happen and it was a bad speed sensor. Does it flash continually or is it intermitant?  It can be many things.  You either need to get a service manual or take it to a dealer or ATV mechanic.
