Hey guys, so I drive a 2015 Yamaha R3 and recently I have experienced the following issue. On a rainy I was riding on the freeway at about 60-70 mph. On 6th gear, I pressed on the clutch to start pressing on the brakes to slow down in traffic. The engine surprisingly cut off on me.
I began to test what caused the engine to shut off on me. One night were it was not raining, going about 70-76 mph on 6th gear, I pressed on the clutch and shifted down to 5th gear; the engine shut off on its own.
To get out of doubt, I tested the same thing on the street that same night on 4th gear at 50-56 mph, I pressed the clutch and downshifted to 3rd gear; the engine shut off.
It's new to me after riding for a year, is that normal on a 2015 R3? Has anyone experienced the same thing?
I have the clutch pressed when it happens, so the bike just rolls. The fact that the bike is on gear, if I let go of the clutch, I'm sure it will flip me over.
In fact, if you are rolling, you could put the bike in 3rd gear, slow to around 15-20 mph, drop the clutch and the bike should restart itself. Keyword there being 'should', since you clearly have a problem with the bike.
Have you done any mods to the bike, or has the bike been dropped?
Any chance of there being a short to the ignition or kill switch?
