Battery terminals good and it only happens when I'm standing. Was at the dealer today and they couldn't see anything wrong and of course the bike behaved itself there. Anyone here had anything similar or have any ideas?
ps I'm not activating the side stand switch when I stand up

Do you keep a finger or 2 on the clutch lever all the time? Clutch switch maybe?

Yea I know weird idea huh.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13:13

Sound like a bad power connection for sure so a bad plug or connection on the ignition system but why when standing only ?

I don't know what happens if the tilt switch is activated ? does it act like the ignition system is shut down and the dash goes blank ?

Are you 100% sure the kill switch is not being moved when standing ?

You say your battery connections are good, did you also check the earth where it bolts to the motor and the power cable where it bolts to the starter solenoid ?

Another wild idea, but close to my battery is the tip over switch/box. Could it be that it is shifting position and killing the bike. It should have an up arrow on it to indicate the "on" position. My ECU is a bit harder to reach unless yours has been moved.

Booked in to the dealers tomorrow to get it plugged in as I can't see any bad connections/earths. Hope they find something

Took it to the dealers who plugged it into the computer - no faults. Checked the trip switch - fine. Checked the side stand switch - working. Checked the wiring and couldnt see anything wrong. He then took it for a test ride and ............ bike behaved perfectly!
I was adamant that the bike had a problem and asked what happened next so it was a process of elimination and he would bypass the sidestand switch first and told me to ride the bike for a couple of days.
The problem has not SO FAR reoccurred so either its a faulty switch or he has moved the wiring about and there is no short now. I'm going to ride it for another week to make sure.
You have self doubt when these things happen but if I had activated the sidestand switch when standing up yes it would have cut out but there would have been lights on the dash and on my bike it was blank so fingers crossed we have identified the problem.

Great progress. Yes, you need to be sure an issue is resolved. If the fault fails to re-surface have a buddy observe you as you sit on your bike in your normal riding position.

I'm not sure with your bike you could check but this is what happens if it is the stand switch on a 2014 1000.

If the stand switch is activated while in gear you will see this.

Where the gear position is indicated the number will be replaced with a dash (-), the temperature gauge will fill to the top and you will get a check showing up on the dashboard.


The only problem is that it is not instant it will take a second or two to happen.


The stand switch should never leave your dashboard blank.


I recommend every trouper get to know these things about their bikes it could come in handy one day.

DancerDave : How is everything going with the bike now ? If the issues have stopped then the Side stand switch
is the culprit. Could be the body of the switch is fractured or an internal intermittant connection. In any case it should
be replaced with a new one to (hopefully) restore normal operation.
