Have you noticed if while the panel lights go off the rev counter also drops to zero?
Does it happen while you are breaking?
And do you indicators slow/stop working too?
I had this happening to me a few weeks back(and on a previous bike), it was a near flat battery, brought on by a shagged rectifier, changed recifier - problem sorted! There are other causes for the battery not to charge, such as a faulty connection(generally this seems to be at the front left clusters, under the infill), or it could be the stator coil being burnt out/faulty. I'd check connections and coil condition first, then fully recharge battery and see if it starts again. Although this can be hard to judge as new/newish batteries still self charge quite alot when not in use. If all's okay and it still occurs replace the recifier(?25-40) Although, I just went straight for the recifier replacement option and sorted it straight away.
Yeha it does happen while braking and indicating I dont think the rev counter drops as it is hard to read while turning but i think the indicators slow down though.
I will go though the list you have given me when I get home and will post an update tomorrow!
Thanks heaps man anyways!
Last night I pull off the tank so I could get to the rectifier and found that the plug to the recifier had burn marks in it so then I checked the connections and the connectors where loss, so I tighten them up and then went for a reallty long ride and looks like the problem is solved.
I will post another update if it starts up again...
