well it's sounding more and more like a PCIII issue. do you have the original map saved? zero the map after you save it, inspect your plugs, recharge your battery, and give it another go.

can't say for sure, but it this fixes it, and if you go back it creates problems, then we found the problem.

with more detail on what you mean by "it wouldn't start" i could tell you.

so when you turn the bike on, what happens?
When you flip the run switch to ON, what happens?
when you hit the starter button, what happens?

My cam position sensor was bad on my bike when i had this problem. I laid it down on the left side.... Also there should be a code flash on your display the service manual should be on here somewhere. Just match the number of flashes with the manual. Remember one long flash equals 10 short flashes.

5 minutes! What amperage are you using to charge the battery?!

please do this for me, do not vary this at all.

Take the battery out of the bike. Set the charger to 2A or lower, hook the battery up, and let the battery charge over night. in the morning, take the battery to an auto parts store to get load tested. if this cannot be done, find a multi-meter, install the battery, switch your multimeter to VDC, attach the leads from the multimeter to the battery's terminals, note the battery's voltage, turn the bike on, hold the throttle wide open, as far as it'll go, start cranking. monitor the voltage of the battery while cranking for 10 seconds. if the voltage drops below 9 volts (there are there abouts) you have a bad battery and it must be replaced.

Release the throttle, and start the bike. take note of the battery's voltage. is it higher than before you started this testing regimen? it should be in the 13.x VDC range. now turn on your high beam and rev the motor to 5000 rpm and take note of the voltage. it should increase, but it should not be above 15.5VDC at any time.

thanks.

It's gotta be a fueling problem then because your battery and charging system sounds strong. check your plugs.

when it sputters and dies, do you notice that if you hold the clutch in do the lights on the dash go out?
