Sudden momentary switch off!
on: 15 July, 2021, 08:44:06 AM
Hello, i have a 2008 mk1 bike and recently i have experienced sudden power loses in two situations. a) When i just start to move the bike with 1st gear (which resulted in almost dropping the bike because it happens in semi open clutch) and when i'm in idle and just going backwards. The power loss is instantaneous and i can start it again as soon as it happens with no delay! Does anyone can help me with this. Does it seems like a known issue to you? Thanks in advance for any help!

Is it random?

How experienced a motorcyclist are you?

Sounds as if your stalling the engine, give it a little more throttle and you'll probably be fine.

I ride since forever and this bike since 2014. Anyway i just thought about removing and contact cleaned the two clutch connectors beside the handlebar and i'll see what happens. Any other ideas?

Yeah, but in only these two situations i described. Maybe it happens in full engine and bike work load, but i cannot recognize it because it probably starts again in an instant on its own as the bike moves. So it's semi-random and i can't replicate it at will

Might be worth giving your side stand switch a clean and check?

I know it might seem unrelated but you never know?

Yeah, i can see its relevance. For now (and after the 2 connector cleaning) the bike rides smoothly. If something happens, i'll clean the side stand switch, thanks for the idea.
