'04 R1150RT dies without warning

Hi. I just got back a trip to Hyder, Alaska. Twice on the trip, the bike simply quit. On both occasions, it happened right after starting the bike after it had been sitting for a couple of hours and riding about one block. Then the bike died. No warning. I hit the starter - nothing - no power. I hit the starter another coouple of times; again, nothing, no power. I hit the starter again and the bike starts, no problem.


Anybody else experience a similar problem??


Potential diagnosis?? Could this be a problem with the sidestand cut-out switch that prevents the bike from running in gear when the sidestand is down?

Check the rider information display. Parts of it won't work if the bike is in gear and the sidestand swtich is at fault.


Could also be a failing kill switch.
