Check the starter relay that sits just in front of the battery... if that goes bad, then pretty much the entire bike is "dead"... and if you tap it (or jump it) then that may explain why the problem goes away temporarily....The last stop on my trip while fueling the bike cut off. No display, no electrical response from any of the controls. I opened the battery compartment and tighten the connections on the battery which were not lose and the bike comes back to life. I ride another 75 miles and again the bike dies. Again I open the battery compartment and tap the battery and bike comes back to life. I am able to start and ride off... I notice as the rpms fall below 1500 is when the bike dies..
That relay wears out; someone on here recently found a Cracked Case to the 30amp fuse on the front of that relay causing same symptom; Check the 30amp fuse too... it may be bad or loose.
