My RC is shutting off for a instant intermittently. It will be full power closing in on red line then cut out and about put your head through the wind screen then right back on putting me in the back of the seat.
I've pulled the bike apart looking for a shorted wire hoping to find a smoking gun but no luck. I've pulled every connector apart cleaned greased and put back together.
If anyone has a suggestion I would appreciate it going to the track isn't fun when your worried about the bike cutting out in a corner and getting high sided.

It's not hitting the rev limiter yet it will keep climbing after comes back on and I hit the rev limiter enough to be sure that's not it its a complete shut down . It seems the FI was on while it cut out.

I'm going to get a new battery for it tomorrow.
I disconnected the quick shifter then power commander It shut down down running it in the pits then after more reconnecting connectors and wiggling of wires and power commander still disconnected it ran a session without a glitch.

Happened to me when I first got mine. Was pulling great till around 10000 rpm, then poof! Hit hard limiter and I was up over the windscreen. Thought I blew the motor. Took it home did some research and found out what it was, now I pay attention to rpm's if I'm ever pushing hard on her. Hope that's all it was on yours. It's pretty abrupt when it happens if your not expecting it.
