Default 85 shadow vt1100c rear pistons misfire when hot

appreciate the replies for my first post about my coils. well i thought my shadow had bad coils but after switching front for rear coil, the same problem presented. after the bike warms up for about 5-10 mins both rear pistons stop firing. thinking now that the problem is with either a bad ic ignitor board or possibly a pulse generator. any other ideas or advice? i wanna ridddddeeeeee!!!!
thanks
george

Does the 1100 have seperate ignition boxes for front and rear like my 700? If so, how about swapping boxes?

only one ignition box. its when the bike generally just warms up. its not running super hot. the problem occurs about 5-10 minutes after its fired up
