Hello, I am trying desperately to resolve the issue that im having with my Kawi.

I was riding the bike without any issue for the past week, then all of a sudden it just turned off while I was riding. The dails turned off and killed the whole bike.
I have checked to see if any of the fuses had blown or if there was any loose wiring but have had no joy.
I have installed an eliminator plug for the side stand as this was stated as a common issue but I'm still having issues.
Just in case it had anything to do with the fuel pump I checked it and it is working fine.

Is there a tip over sensor on the bike that could be faulty and where is it located if so, I have looked under the main/passenger seat but couldn't find a sensor, only found the sensor for the fuel pump.

Anyone got any ideas?, I just miss being able to ride this bike

Hello and welcome!

It sounds like the battery or charging system. Get the Service Manual for your bike, and find the section that shows how to test the charging system components (you will need a multimeter).

I had very similar issues on a used '97 cbr600f3 I bought with something like 14k miles on it. The bike would start and run fine and while at speed it would just die without sputtering out as it would if gas had run out. It happened many times and I got real observant of the situation. One time the dash went out, tachometer stopped working and suddenly before I could get to the should bike died in the middle of the freeway. The bike would have no electrical for a while, no lights, starter would do nothing and always within 30 minutes or so It would "recover" and I'd get it started and ride home.

I had a chronic electrical malfunction that could not be repeated when I brought it into the shop. I had put in a new battery, new regulator, spark plugs were new, gas was fresh and the carbs had been removed and cleaned out with a dynojet tuning kit installed at the local dealer service shop. I pretty eliminated the fueling as the issue and believed the issue to be an electrical problem. I started the shotgun approach and began the process of swapping out the electronic components. I bought from ebay a used ecu, or black box for the same year, make model plugged it and never had the stalling again. In my case it was a bad ecu.
