Re: HELP!!! Engine shuts off ... wait 10 minutes it goes again ... Honda RC51 engine

interesting.
my Apex has a similar stator and so far no problems. I am using a battery about the same size as the 925.
I have hid headlights and a 30" led bar, but haven't been on any long night rides yet.
Trey put a bigger car battery in his Apex, planning on charging it overnight once in a while like you are considering.

It ended up being a bad Power Commander. Tried the new battery and no luck so drove it until it shutoff on me again, unplugged the PC, and no problems since.

Well, not exactly ... new Power Commander did exactly the same thing but after only a couple minutes riding. Was about to throw in the towel and then remembered the PC ground wire was attached to the frame when I removed the other one and the install guide called for it to be on the negative battery terminal although I dont think it should matter. Thought it was worth a shot to put it directly on the battery and sure enough no problems on my next three rides. I had even taken he time to clean up the frame ground so know it had clean metal to metal contact but there was also a red mystery wire attached to the same place so threw up a red flag and perhaps one way or another it was causing a ground issue.

On my old 636 I had a power commander and it would have a hiccup/miss at around 8k RPM's. It ran perfect with the power commander bypassed, so I connected it again and it was fine. Some of my friends have had similar circumstances. The power commander is the root of all evil, always check it first in my experiences.
