I took off all the plastics, and disconnected and reconnected all visible electrical connections, and changed the oil for the third time. it was really dark, but at least theres not any shavings in it anymore, so the pistons are probably set in thier grooves.
Once I re-hooked up all the connectors and filled the oil to the top, and checked all fuses and put them back, it turned over like it was brand new. I think all the high speed driving on rough pavement and hitting the wood and squirrel rattled some connector loose somewhere in either FI or the starter or something. I dunno why it would die the one time i actually come to a complete stop tho.
I am just glad to not have to tow it to the dealer or even have the dealer touch it. My dealer is really good, but I have heard horror stories of bikes being crashed, stolen, damaged, etc at dealers, or having them say the warrantee doesnt cover it and charge out the ass.
total cost of repairs was about 35 bux for oil, filter, 6 dolla tip for tow driver, and 4 bux for a rubber nut for the fairing i lost when i test rode the bike without plastics. Thanks for all the input, but i still really have no clue what the culprit was, but definitely think it was a loose connector.
and thanks for the compliment on the accord. put a lot of dollars and wrenchtime on lil stuff here, there and everywhere. used to mod hondasociety, superhonda, and some other forums, and run honduh.com. an old friend from SHO also owns v6performance.net.
