Electrics Cut When Bars Turn
I've noticed a recurring problem with my 06. Some times, usually after riding and parking the bike in the garage, when I move the handle bars to the left, just before full lock, the electrics cut then come back on.
This causes the lights to flick off then back on and the dash to do its little pre flight dance, and if the engine is running it kills the engine. It hasn't been a major issue but I have had it happen after pulling out of a tight junction, which is a little worrying.
Annoyingly I cant replicate it every time. I have had it happen when starting the bike cold in the morning, but more often after riding it home. I made it do it three times in a row this evening but now it wont do it no matter how many times I sit there moving the bars.
If I had to guess I would say it has something to do with the steering lock, and maybe the HISS as it seems to happen around that sweet spot when the steering lock can be applied.
I've searched the net for anyone having this problem but some up with nothing. Any one got ANY ideas?
