Starting problems (after stalling)

Has anyone had any issues restarting (after stalling their bike).

I have a 1078 Brutale and this has happened twice. Once stalled at traffic lights and today when parking (putting stand down in gear - cut out as expected).

The bike will not start for a while and all lights on dash flash on and off when attempting. After leaving it a few minutes it works ok.

Any feedback appreciated.

Same thing happened to me at least 3 times always at traffic lights(thought there might be a conspiracy thing going on with traffic lights)The bike would start after a few minutes and behave normally .Had Xbikes microtec ecu fitted and the problem disappeared.

I would be thinking about corrosion in the wiring loom where it bends under the frame on the front RHS, near the fuse box. Water gets in and a joint fails. If it gets really bad, have a decent main dealer (Jap or otherwise) with an electrician to delve into the loom and sort it.

It took my local Honda shop 2 hrs to fix - a bargain.

I have 910s and this happens to me every so often. If the radiator fan is running when I try to restart, the battery doesn't seem to have enough pull to crank the motor over. Once the fan stops, it will start.

I personally think it's a fault in the computer. I have a 2006 F4 and a 2009 Brutale 1078RR and I've had them both do it. One time I was in the garage when it happpened. I reset the computer by removing the positive battery cable and the bike started normally.
