Help! Power delivery died when running
I have a 2003 CBR 600RR with +18K miles
Full Arata Ti system
Pipercross air filters
Acumen Gear indicator
Today when riding some twisties, the bike was running fine at speed, and lean angle to lean angle, so I don't think it could be the Bank Angle Sensor. After a short break when cruising to the next destination at about 60 mph, twice the power delivery failed, RPM dropped, and all lights on the dash were on. Basically the bike died as if the engine cut-off switch was pressed. I had to turn the key to turn off and then restart the bike when rolling. The first time I even hit the starter button to get it revived. The second time after turning the key, I was able to pop the clutch to get it revived.
On my way home this did not happen again.
I recently had the battery exposed when reinstalling the plastics from my trackday bodywork. A ratchet tool touched the red terminal and a electrical current arc slightly burned the plastic cover for the battery terminal. Could this be the cause?
What else could have caused this? My guess would be something electrical.
What can I do to check this out?
Can someone put up a picture of what needs to be done to run diagnostic codes?
Thank you for any helpful suggestions.
