GL 1500 1988 model.
Have 112000 miles, have owned since 05, never had any misfire before!

Riding along, doing about 70 - 75 mph, after about 3 hrs, the engine suddenly died, no poff, no pangs, ran flawless untill engine stopped, like cutt with a scissor, plenty power on battery, starter runs, but no sign of firing, absolutely nothing!
I hsve from time to time had a issue with the stop switch on the right handlebar, but then if tapped on the switch in "run" position it always fired right up, not so this time, where should i start?

i will start at cleaning the stop switch on the right handlebar with an electric cleaner as you said you had previous problems with this switch.

I believe I would start the easy things.
First: Fuse #2, Ign. Cruise Fuse, 15 amp in the Fuse/Relay Box.
Next: Switch relay #8, Ign Cruise Relay (Fuse/Relay Box) with another same type relay.
Next: Inspect and clean the Engine Stop (Run/Kill) Switch. Probably should do this anyway since you have had problems.
These are the only things in the circuit supplying 12 volts to the Ignition Coils.
Fuse #12, Tail/Ign fuse supplies 12 volts power to energize the Ign Cruise Relay, along with using theBank Angle Sensor for a path to ground.
Let us know what you find.

Hate to add this but if the left side timing belt breaks that is exactly what will happen. Dead instantly and won't re-start. Hope this isn't the case.

possible the bank angle switch ,,, they are the exact symptoms ,but would normally start right up after the ignition is turned off and on again ,But it could be completely stuck ,, it is under the passenger seat on the right hand side as you sit on the bike ,just under the frame near the side box ,Ciaran
