Just picked up a used HP2 MegaMoto with 1,236 miles on it. First of all the problem happens about once a day. It first happened as I was pulling into a parking lot. It just turned off. Now today, while on the freeway it died but since I had the clutch out it jumped started and all was normal again. I am not feeling any power loss. The only odd thing is that the temp light flashes like it has a lose connection.
Sounds like some kinda bad electrical connection. Check all your wireing is good and all connections are tight. Then start checking things like the switch gear on the bars and ignition switch. A voltmeter will be a very handy tool for this.and also Check your Battery cables, especially the Ground.

sounds like a CDI issue!
could also be an ignition switch or run/stop switch issue.
is the bike lacking any power when running?
Maybe stator pick-up coil as well.
Have electrical components checked at the dealer.
Had a simuliar problem, Bike would have a total shutdown a High Temps/Low Speeds/High RPMs. Everything would reset itself after appox 2 minutes. Everything would shutdown Electric and engine.
2 Harley dealers spent 75 hours diagnosing it, dealer could not reproduce it. Last repair was to replace battery cables. Seems to have fixed it. Have ridden 15oo miles since repair. Problem reacurred once last time I rode. Again complete shutdown bike restored after 2 minutes. Did not happen again the rest of the day over 200 miles
With only 1145 miles on your bike, it has obviously been sitting a lot. What has happened is the gasoline that was in the carburetors has evaporated and left behind some varnish which has plugged up the very small openings in the carb jets and other passageways. The carburetors need to be disassembled and cleaned out. This will fix the problem, every time.
I am no expert just a VTX owner myself.
If it is not the coil, make sure your negative ground on the battery is screwed down tight. I use a product called "seafoam" to clean my fuel system, plus it also removes carbon from the head of the pistons.
Hope this helps.
how many lights are you running? try disconnecting the battery and hooking up a shunt with a volt meter or a current meter inline. then check the current with different accessories or everything running. If you have a big load and stereo amp you may need to upgrade the charging system and the Circuit Breaker or try a aftermarket CB.
It happened once to me, riding slow, new pavement, very hot day, spot lights and stereo amp on.
Have a new CB on order but, put on another 4000 miles without another problem????
Check your kick stand sensor if it's unplugged then there is your problem.
If it's still plugged in then the sensor might be gone.
The sensor shuts the bike down if you try to take off when the kick stand is down.
you can bypass the sensor by jumping the two wires before the sensor with a piece of wire connecting the two leads together.
doing so will allow the bike to be put into gear with the kick stand down so always check it so you won't have an accident.
this time there was alot of smoke coming from under the seat. I found the Start Mod had a melt down. Now I'm still waiting for part to come. Has anybody had a similar issue? The bike is an'06 TT with only 710 miles. I bought it used with 660 mile on it.Let me start by saying that someone is not getting the the battery terminals tight to begin with. These are just bolts not Ridley bolts and should be tightened as you would tighten any bolt. If you find that bolts are continually getting lose there is a product called Loc-tite that can be applied to the threads to prevent loosening.
The smoke is a different matter. Generally when this happens we find aftermarket lighting or changes in the original wiring. You now need to see a mechanic,
