    Have you checked to see if the bike's throwing any codes? Start there to see if it narrows things down. Did you just take bike out of storage & was the fuel treated (stabil)?

    In addition to Iceman's input, I'll ask the question that applies in ANY situation. What was the last thing, maintenance/addition/mod, that you did to your bike?

    Check your battery connections, this happened to both of my bikes, just tightened them up, no problems, part of my pre-ride now.
