Re: bike shuts off while riding...please help!!!!!!!

Over the years I've been on this forum whenever someone posts symptoms like yours where the bike dies mysteriously more often than not it ends up being a bad side stand switch which is there to keep you from riding with the side stand down.

However one key symptom of the side stand switch problem is that when it does run it runs perfect, quits, and then starts running perfect again. If in fact after yours quits you notice some kind of prolonged loss of power when it starts running again it probably isn't the side stand switch.

With the power commander attached to your neg battery terminal, your connection may be just a hair loose. If you were under throttle when it died, it may start a bit rough as the combustion chamber didn't burn out. Try tightening your negative terminal, and see if that helps. Good luck, and please keep us posted.

pull the seat off and take a philips head screw driver or the tool required and tighten the "-" side. check for any wires running to the battery and make sure there all connected correctly...no frayed or stray wires.

Does it just stop running or does it lose all electronic power? I had the same problem with a bike of mine awhile ago and it turned out that a ground wire from my wiring harness was loosing connection and it was turning on and off while I was riding. Hope for you that's not the case.

My bike is having this problem as well. It shuts off suddenly and then starts right back up. I believe it is my side stand switch. How do I test it? Just check for loose connections? Or use a multimeter? Any help would be highly appreciated!

Re: bike shuts off while riding...please help!!!!!!!

make sure your kick stand is not falling when your riding. tie the kick stand up and see if it cuts out again. if the oil light stays on be careful could be bad sensor or motor gone. its not on because of low oil. might want to try a tune up and put something in the tank to treat possible bad gas. Ive ran thru a few of these problems myself
