I had a issue previously and posted about a year ago which has sadly returned
What’s happening is when I’m riding the bike it’s fine on short journeys, on longer rides the bike stops without warning
What happens is you’ll be going along and bike running perfectly then you’ll go for the throttle and there will be nothing there the bike has died as such and won’t restart on the starter, now because the bike is freewheeling if you pull the clutch in and turn the bike off and on again it starts up normally and works for a bit and then rinse and repeat
When the bike stops the oil light does come on, in my previous post I thought and guys that read the forum that it was a mapping issue as I was running a custom map and a power commander 5, since then i have returned to the map made by dynojet on there site
I was chatting to someone the other day that’s had 3 x cb1000r’s and two had done this and there was a dirty connection or something that’s quite common but can’t really remember what he said
Just wondered if anyone else had this sort of issue or and suggestions as it’s getting a bit annoying now and quite dangerous
If it was simply a dirty connection it would happen on short rides as well as long.
From what you say it does seem to be heat related. If your ignition light or oil light comes on there must be power in the system.
These sorts of faults are always hard to find. It sound like a poor connection that sometimes makes a connection from vibration as you start the engine on the move. Unfortunately, to check this, you are going to have to make and break as many plugs as you can find. A drop of WD 40 quite often helps in these situations.
It's definitely not the oil filter. ( As long as it is correctly specified for your bike. ). The noise you hear is induction roar as the engine will still be breathing in, even if it's not firing, while you are coasting in gear.
You have a component starting to fail due to overheating or a poor electrical connection somewhere.
Also check the TPS connection. Easy - turn on ignition (don't have to start bike) and roll the throttle whilst looking at LEDs on the PCIII. (ooops… I was thinking PCIII, not PCv sorry)
That being said - check the cutout switch and the sidestand switch as a preliminary troubleshoot. BE CAREFUL on sidestand switch - disconnect and short the wires from the loom.... BE CAREFUL as you run the risk of starting the bike in gear. Any time the sidestand is down the engine will be totally immobilized - sorta like dead. You can be riding along and lower the sidestand and the bike will die (as you describe).
Same method for the cutoff switch (right handlebar switch assy). Checking that is a little more awkward.
