Engine cut out
Last service: 6000km 6months ago
Problem: I was riding along during the middle of the night about 5 mins into my ride. Outside, it's about 10 degrees Celsius.
I was turning into a corner on 2nd gear and the engine just cut out.
I pull it to the side and try to restart it.... nothing.
Double checked everything: stand is up, gear is in neutral, engine cut-off switch is not flicked on. Still nothing. Just the ignition sound.
Engine Temp was around 76 degrees Celsius.
So I switched off everything, took the key out, and tried everything from the beginning.
This time I noticed that the red light to indicate the fuel injection system is off.
So I switched the key off then on again, still nothing.
Did it again, the red light comes on, but still can't start the motor.
This trying and re-trying occurs for a good 2mins, sometimes the fuel injector light goes on, sometimes it's not there. Keep doing this until it eventually starts again.
One thing I did notice. When I started the engine the first time, it was having difficulties. Can't remember if the fuel injector light was on or not.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
