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.

Throwing this in to maybe have a look at:

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

While I was waiting to be picked up, I put in a new starter fuse and it started. This was the second time I replaced that fuse so I think it may be the relay. Any ideas or input?

Yes, what Blackgoldsaw mentioned above or your clutch switch.

If the fuse is blowing you need to check the connections and wiring on the relay for damage or poor connection....

What exactly would that look like?
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.

Just out of curiosity do you ever wash or ride the bike in the rain?

Is there dramatic differences in the temps at night versus when your riding it?

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.

Thanks for reporting back, not alot of folk do that.

Hope the issue is resolved though, like it was water in a connector or something
