The electrics are not effected when it shuts down. Tried the kickstand sensor and it works normal. I believe it is something simple but Yes it feels like it runs out of gas. Starter will not activate until the key is cycled off and back on. I work in aircraft so am familiar with troubleshooting issue and have not been able to nail it down. Dealership is closed today so not sure if they found anything out with Kawasaki.There's lot's of things that can "shut down" the bike while riding. Perhaps some insight as to what it seems or feels like:
Like the kill switch is being activated? Electrics go off too? Or does it seem like it's running out of fuel?
The story has a happy ending as the dealer found a faulty kill switch.Good luck with that. Nobody has any bikes in stock.
I did not know that. But I have never used the kill switch to turn any bike off if the bike had an ignition switch. I view the kill switch as for an emergency only and I have never had any issues with my kill switch.On some bikes, it's best to store the bike with the stop switch in the "run" position. On some bikes, they can corrode and not work properly if stored closed. BMW's had a problem with this years ago.
I have always used the kill switch to turn off every bike I've owned or ridden since the mid-'70s. I have never once had an issue with my kill switch either, even after thousands or maybe tens of thousands of cycles. The problem described in this thread sounds more like a design or fabrication issue than a use issue. These bikes are new! A '21 Voyager in June 2021 and a '22 Voyager in June 2022.I did not know that. But I have never used the kill switch to turn any bike off if the bike had an ignition switch. I view the kill switch as for an emergency only and I have never had any issues with my kill switch.
