Bike loses power and dies
Hi, I have a 2001 Yamaha r1. I run the bike around 6000rpm in second gear and the bike stops but the gages are still on. Sometimes it happens in 3rd gear at a different rpm. This problem started about a month ago. The bike restart in neutral, but when I go in first gear, it dies. It takes about 4 time for the bike to restart and go. It seems like this problem is happening when I take bumps on the road....I by-passed my switch stand and its not the problem. I think its an electronical problem but I dont know where to start...I saw in other conversations that this could be a problem with the air going through the gas tank...
