Re: k9 1000 random issue
When the kickstand folds in, it pushes on a switch. The ECU requires this switch to be pushed to allow the bike to run, as a safety measure, so that you don't take off with the stand down. If the kickstand can wiggle too much when up, it might swing downwards enough to momentarily release the switch, which results in a momentary power cut. To see if that is your problem, you can use a ziptie to tie down the switch to the pressed position. If the problem stops, then the kickstand is the culprit and I suppose the first thing to do, would be to make sure everything is tightened down and to replace the springs holding the stand up.
