2002 650 Prairie loses power

New to the forum, desperate for help. Not sure if this is a belt issue or cooling. If I ride short distances no problems but if I go on a hour long hot ride it cuts to half power mode, the speedometer reads zero even though it's going 20 KPH, engine feels very hot. I stop for just 5 minutes, start up again and it's full power for 10 minutes or so. Then this all repeats again. Next day, short rides, no problems, full power all day as long as short rides. Just can't figure if it's a cooling issue or belt? This quad is in Mexico and impossible to find a qualified Kawasaki mechanic.
