Got it.

Even though the earth wire bolt from the bundle of cables going round the headstock was nice and tight, the wire inside had split. I presume as the bike heated up it softened the wire outer and got into a better position, which is why it didn't cut out after the first few minutes, and only moving the bars to full lock when cold split it.

:yup:

have you tried starting it as you normally do
then try wiggling the wiring loom under the clocks
to see if you can replicate the fault

some Buell's can be a bit tight with cable lengths & routing
so it could be a broken cable inside the cables insulation.

have you put a different set of bars on ?
as this can be the route cause as well :?:


:mrgreen: my work here is done
