Sounds like it's tripping the main circuit breaker. It is located on the rear splash gaurd. I would try replacing it first before tracking down a short, they do go bad over time and is pretty common. Make sure the connections are clean and tight. Good luck!

Cutting out while riding

I have a bike that at one time I'd be riding along, and the motor would die, and all lights and instrument go out, as if I turn it off with the key.

Turn key off, back on, and all would be fine until the next time.

It turned out to be a bad ignition switch.

Honda cbr 600 will run for a little bit then just die and has problems starting back up. When riding it will lose power and just die. Wait couple minutes and have the choke on to get it to start again.

Without knowing the age of your bike, I would say you have a fuel problem. Either your fuel filter is blocked, your fuel pump is blocked/not working or your tank is low on fuel. More seriously - it could be fuel evaporation in the inlet (usually only a problem on engines with hot carburettors).

I hope it is the easier fix and that this helps.
