'06 ZX10 cuts out.

Hi All - Any ideas. Did a ride day at Phillip Island yesterday on my ZX10 trackbike - stupidly left my key at the hotel, used my spare key for the first session. Bike continually cut out in top gear at approx 260kmh on the main straight (normally gets to around 280-285kmh). Completely cut out & would'nt restart until I keyed off & on again - security key icon was flashing on dash. Went back & got the other key - wouldnt fire at all. Put red key in, fired up ok. tried both black keys & neither would start it. Finished off the day with red key but bike still cut out at 260 in top.
Any suggestions would be helpful before I head off to a dealer.

Have a look at the tip-over sensor, and make sure it hasn't come loose (perhaps out of it's rubber mount). Possibly not all the problem, but worth a look.


Do not walk behind me, for I may not be leading.
Do not walk in front of me, for I may not follow.
Do not walk alongside me, for the path may be narrow.
Just piss off and leave me alone.
