Default Dies when put in gear.

Guy at work is having this issue and asked me what I thought. A very well taken care of, mechanically sound 2013 TRX420 quad. Idles fine. Rev's to the moon in neutral, but as soon as you put it in gear and hit the gas it dies. 1/4 throttle, full throttle, doesn't matter. Feels like the thing is harder to start the hotter it gets.
My first thought was valves, but after talking, ruled out valves.
It has eaten a brand new battery recently, so I feel that it is electrical, but not exactly sure what electronics would cause this issue.

Has he changed any wiring? It sounds a little like the throttle safety switch but I can't remember if it works in neutral or not, thought it did.
