Question about Honda Boating
It should be your brake light switch. There is a little plate welded to the arm of the pedal that has a hole with a rubber stopper. The rubber stopper is most likely missing, or damaged. You should be able to take a flashlight and see the plate and the switch. If the hole is plugged up, you will need the brake light switch, if not, replace the plug.

I guess before I can really help you here I need to know if this is a stock bike or not. If it is a stock bike the rev limiter shut the bike down the spark to protect the engine. I find it hard to believe the bike wont start. The bike usaully runs fine again once the engine fall back into the limits of RPMS. Anyhow you might want to disconnect the batterry leads strarting with the negative first and then the psoitive and let it be disconnected for about 15 minutes. This will reset the computer unit in the bike and hopefully start communicationg with the rev limiter again. If the bike still does not start you have more problems then this.

Hello Kia Owner,
Regarding the shut down, when was the last time you changed the timing belt?? Did you know that the twin cam 1.5 lirte motor needs a new belt every 50,000 miles or 80,000 kms.
If the belt has failed it may still be in tact but with the cogs ripped off.
Your valves have collided with at least one piston but it is good you were only idling at the time.
The motor may be worth fixing. I just fixed mine myself. I had to lift the engine after removing the axles. I removed the old timing belt and removed and rebuilt the cylinder head(big job). Two exhaust valves were boken right off and lying inside one cylinder.
Most likely your timing belt failed as well.
