Maybe the exhaust valve?
The charging system is a simple check with a voltmeter across the battery terminals.

wouldnt the valve cause the problem all the time. whats the likely hood of a fuel pump only crapping out at a cretin point?

The valve opens and closes at specific points in the revs. If it's not opening or closing when it should that might cause the problem.
Unlikely to be the fuel pump I would think.

fyi bladeracer is always right
I reckon I could find dozens of posts where I was clearly wrong :)
It'd get pretty boring if I knew everything already :)

The valve opens at 5000rpm and as far as I know, stays open. Did this problem happen all of a sudden? If not then fuelling could be an issue. Compression? Check all your plugs to make sure they are in tight and any other places you could be losing pressure.

Nah, don't bother. You don't need it, it's just there for noise control more than anything. If anything, you might as well put race can on it and let it breathe properly.
