Theres a post on here somewhere about this exact issue, but I dont remember them saying their bike would die, just that the display would shut off.

First place to start is to check the fit of the connection on the back of the Gauge cluster. Might be worth removing the ground from your battery too for a couple hours just to let the ECU reset, and make sure both connections to the battery are secure when you reconnect.

Intermittent electrical issues are by far the hardest thing to troubleshoot on anything unfortunately.

I think a couple people had faulty ignition switches (making bad contact) replaced.

In Asia there is already another recall talks about ignition switch problem.
