I was riding around and out if nowhere the bike looses all rev and power. Then comes back on or stalls. Happens anytime. The yellow indicator light comes on but then goes off. Now the bike won't even turn on.
Dirty/Faulty kickstand switch?
When bike is turned on, whether the engine is running or not and you have the kickstand down it shows the yellow indicator light on the dash. *When you're in first gear and kickstand is down the yellow indicator is still on and when you release the clutch is automaticly shuts off the engine.
Maybe dirt or factory (the watery) chain lube has accumilated itself into the kickstand connector
It is the connector that has the main fuse (and spare) on it. Unplug it, look at the wiring going in and the condition of the connections. Check your battery ground cable for clean and tight connections at BOTH ends.
All the wires seem to be okay. I haven't washed my bike in a while and I try not to ride in the rain. A few rain drops here and there but no down pour. I typically only ride during the day so there isn't much difference.
also check the wiring loom down the right hand side of the bike, I recently had a similar problem which turned out the wiring loom was rubbing and wore on the frame, this in turn caused a couple of wires to earth on the frame and caused all kinds of trouble, from loss of all electrics, and then coming back on when ignition off etc, check no wires have been rubbing and have earthed on frame of bike.

My model is 2013 and i heard someone that would not recommend me to do it as will lose power...
Ok, we know that these heads are failing and we thought we had skirted by this issue until recently when a valve in our freshly rebuilt head failed after only 50 miles or so of track riding / practice. Yes, we use our machines exclusively for racing but the reports are coming to me...
Anyone else seen weird behavior from their B3 800 during a recent ECU flash? Mine is a 1st gen, non abs.
I am in 'race' mode with Traction control on 0 or 1. It seems like if I am accelerating from a stop, there's some kind of magical force preventing the front end from power wheelies. Has...
Ok, my 2018 MV B3 Brutale RR Dragster showed a sudden failed rear brake. Took the bike into my local expert bike mechanic--Mike Haven at MPH here in Houston, TX. We have no MV dealer in Houston, TX. Gave him the recommended MV brake bleed service bulletin. His reaction: the MV bleed is...
