Bike died on me 3 times on the way home
Pulled out of the office, gunned it a little, not much about half throttle all of a sudden *womp* engine just quits, like the kill switch had been hit. The light in the bottom left was lit up ( fuel injection right?) I'm still rolling and I turn the key off, back on, she fires right up.
About 3 miles later on the highway she cuts again, this time I notice the motor is still running, but the throttle does nothing. Also the speedo needle is jumping all over the place. I pulled over cut it off, back on and she fired right up again.
3rd Time only about 1 mile later, same thing. Bottom left light is on engine running, but throttle does nothing. I pulled over, key off, then on, fired up again.
No problems the rest of the 35 miles or so to the house. Is this the TPS? The first time it happened I think the motor cut out completely but I'm not sure, the other two times I'm pretty sure it was still running, but the throttle had no effect. The bike is an 02 with 17k miles, I haven't changed the plugs yet, or messed with the valves.
