your problem will most likely be at the switch. the wires are connected with small screws and u connectors to the switch and very tight wiring. wiggle the wiring to gain some room and repair

104 may or may not be too big , you have to check the plug to see. i'm on a 109 with a sito+. it's better to be alittle bit over jetted than to be to small and burn the thing down. If your going to ride it wide open you may want to look at a cylinder head temp gauge.

I'd add some oil to the oil tank ,disconnect the oil line from the carb, let the oil run to the end of the line and put your finger over the end of the line and reconnect to the carb. there will be a small air bubble. watch that and see if the pump pulls oil in

working on one is going to depend on your background in wrenching on stuff. If you don't have any experience working on stuff your going to have problems and become frustrated or you will be looking for someplace to work on it for you. A 4t is a more complex engine with more moving parts than a 2t. ...

check the vent hole in the gas cap, or next time it quits crack the cap and listen for air moving into the tank. also these are gravity fuel systems, so low fuel level will sometimes cause problems, Try it with the fuel set to the reserve. you could also really be chasing a electrical problem
