Yesterday my bike shut off at about 65. I did notice that it was losing power at a constant roll on the throttle. Bike has ran great and still wants to start but chokes off afterward. :mad: Was thinking maybe the kickstand wire was giving issues because it's all pinched up.

Has anyone had this issue in the past? Many are saying fuel pump fuse or the neutral sensor or loose batter cables.....

All would help:confused:

Tank vent? It's the smallest of the four hoses under the tank.
Find the hose and blow into the tank (with gas cap open) to see if it's clear.
It's easy to pinch hoses when lowering the gas tank. Has it been up recently?
Fuel filter?
Any FI light?

It's also possible your fuel pump relay or bank angle relay could be intermittently giving out.

Makis I smelt fuel immediately at the stall....I did notice that the bike struggles to start cold prior to this prob. Haven't sorted the switch just yet.

Just pull the FPR's vacuum hose and check if there is fuel dripping out of it.

If it's not dripping you should take a fuel pressure measurement as well as a ml/min measurement of the fuel pump like the service manual describes.

Any jobs recently done on the bike?

Harness all good underneath the cowls?
