Just got an update. Mother Honda is telling the shop that with some L2 models the fuel pump is susceptible to "getting something in them" and it could cause these problems. Total plug, it dies, pressure is off the line, fuel flows starts right up. A partial obstruction could cause the current RPM limit at 6,000 acting as if it is starving for gas. All of those pieces might fit as the tech said that when it quite dying the only thing he had done was slightly move the fuel tank, so perhaps it dislodged whatever it was and went from a full block to a partial block. They are sending a new fuel pump assembly.
