Problems!!

long story short.... I recently wrecked on my bike because my engine shut off for some reason in mid turn. Which scared the shit out of me causing my to go wide and bite the dust through a barbed fence and mailbox causing some major plastic damage and tweeked my forks, not to mention nice road rash. Kawasaki said it would be covered under warrenty if there is any codes in the ecm. The shop tryed pulling a code but was unsuccessful, they want the bike road worthy to test drive to see if any codes come up. They are allowing me to install my own forks to save on cost that might have to paid back to me. My question is there any way to make sure theres a code in that damn ecu when it returns so I can end this headache? I've been without my damn bike for almost a month dealing with these asshole at my local dealer. ( the only dealer around me)

if your motor shut off I'd think you'd over steer the bike to the inside not run wide through a turn?? how could you run wide with no power??

My Thoughts Exactly...unless The Surprise Made You Stand The Bike Up.....it Would Have To Be A Code That Shuts Off The Bike Also.....sounds Fishy Here....

Sounds like the code they would be looking for would be the lean sensor that shuts off the fuel pump when bike is laid over.
Maybe that sensor was out of position or faulty and told the computer that bike was beyond 55degrees leaned (or whatever angle the sensor looks for) and shut the fuel off on you.

The thing is it was long semi sharp turn, I was in second and doing about thirty, when the bike shut off I naturally looked down at my gaudes as I pulled the clutch in and I was caught off gaurd. Plus this was untraveled narrow road, I felt that if I was to turn suddenly to avoid the front tire from dropping off the road I would of jack knifed it.


me being caught of gaurd is what fucked me, believe me I've been kicking myself. But if the bike didn,t shut off I would'nt have a problem.

On the bracket that hold the back end of the tank. I suppose you could start your bike up with that bracket removed and then start to angle it until the bike shuts down, then you will no for sure. Also the code should clear when returned to normal position. I just never heard of a problem with those yet.

sure you didn't thumb the kill switch on accident?
the lean angle switch isn't going to just shut the bike off mid-corner..
