Charging issues

Gents-
I have a 2010 1090RR and have replaced the battery within the last 3 months. I've also put on 3500 trouble-free miles on the bike, bought it with 3k on the clock.
Recently I got and error code that said "engine malfunction" starter relay.
This went away, I checked the relay and my tool kit was siting on the relay, it had bounced out of the bucket and landed on the wires...ah-ha!, I got some velcro and the tool kit is staying in it's bucket.
Today after riding about 45 minutes, the dash cuts out, motor still running but not 100%, it comes back to life and I stop to fill-up the tank.
Tank is full, bike will not start, slight and short engagement but dead, it does this several times..... so I'm waiting for my friend to pick me up with his trailer and a stranger shows up that has a portable battery charger.
I put it on and it starts immediately.
My friend shows up with the trailer and follows me back to his shop and the bike dies 2 miles away from the gas station.
It appears to be a charging issue, is this a known issue?

TIA

M

Check those wires on the relay,My mate had the same issue with the tool kit it rubbed the wiring together
and almost shorted them out.

I had a bad meltdown with the wires going to the starter solinoid. Poor connection causes them to heat up and melt into the bundled wires causing all kinds of electrical gremlins. Separate the wires near the starter solenoid connector and check them out. You don't want this mess:

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

Yep, sounds like the wires have melted/shorted.

Thanks Gents-
New solenoid, and starter relay, plus battery (3 most old) was burnt out-put some velcro on that tool kit so it stays put and avoid my problem.

Thx
