Had that with a car many years ago, threw up dozens of fault codes until the temperature dropped again. It was in a very hot country, Perth, Scotland :o

sounds plausible , have you tried reading the stored/historical fault codes ?

Doesn't the ECM do something different during overheat? Sure I've heard someone say it skips a spark to reduce heat and use fuel to help cool or something similar??

Try to go out for a ride next week when it's cooler and see if it still gut's out or not.

My 09 XT has cut out a couple of times on very hot days when stuck in traffic but restarted after letting it cool down for a few minutes. I avoid using it now if very warm like the last few days and take the Guzzi out instead.

Try moving the air sensor into cold free flowing air & cover the bottom of the air box with foil.
This made a hell of a difference on my 1125r. Especially to hot running. I also covered the rear of the sensor with silver foil to stop any radiated heat from effecting it.
Just a suggestion.
All the best Paul.

My Ecu in the car was under the bonnet in a sealed compartment which probably saw temps over 40 degc after sitting in the sun. Once it had cooled down it was fine
