Exclamation 3rd electrical problem

Hey guys!! Need your opinion on what's going on? I am on my 3rd elctrical issue on my 2006 R1. it has 80000 miles and just got done with a full tune up.

1st issue headlights didn't work= main harness needed to be replaced
folsom, ca yamaha repaired
2nd issue bike died and wouldn't start=camshaft sensor cut by fan
capitol yamaha citrus heights, ca repaired
3rd issue bike won't crank over= pick up sensor needs to be replaced
Vacaville,ca yamaha currently repairing I hope

Should I expect these problems considering I ahve ridden year round for two years, and have such high mileage? Or did I get a lemon? Your thoughts? Be kind!

Follow this procedure here! It will eliminate and or considerably cut down on the huge majority of electrical issues.

One of the cheapest preventative measures you can take. Go through the entire bike! Inside the clipon elec controls, battery / ecu / rectifier / stator connectors. Everything!

That sounds odd. What exactly is a "pick-up" sensor?

Edit..Did you sign up for the Dragon squadron?
