I would look for a loose connection someplace or maybe the main fuse is bad or corroded. Is it the original one from honda?, checkthe ignition switch there known for going bad. Pulse generators are known for giving similar problems so you might look there.

I had a car that did the exact same thing you having a problem with. Turned out to be a bad connection at the coil. Took a while to find it as it would run fine otherwise:shock:

Welcome to the forum, Chris! Since your engine has 2 coils and 2 pulse units to fire the coils, I would say it's not them if it dies completly. Your coils connect together at the ground, I would check there. The next place I would look is at the starter relay, just to the right of the battery. The current flows to and from the battery at the terminals at the top of it. They are well known to get hot and burn.
Speaking of burning, do a search on "stator" and you will find plenty of information on a very weak spot in the bikes wiring. You should check this out before trusting the bike very far from home.
Good luck!

Check the main fuse. They are famous for developing hairline cracks and opening when everything heats up. The best thing to do is replace the main fuse block with an automotive 30-amp inline fuse holder. Solder it in and heat-shrink the wires.
