Dang gremlins!

So on my newly purchased 08 cbr heading down Woodlands PKWY about to get on the ramp for 45 when my bike just shut off. Doing about 50 mph all the lights were on but bike just shut off. Pulled over and cut the bike off then cut right back on. WTF!?

You sure you did bump the switch? I would just wait to see if it happens again.

Is it all stock? If it's got a PCIII or Bazzazz it could have a loose power wire to the controller. Happened to me on the R6 I just sold. I had to solder the wire on a power wire. Or as stated above check the batt terminals and grounds.

If it shut off and the cluster was still on the terminals are likely okay. If started back up w no problem likewise unless the terminal shifted again and made contact.

A sidestand switch failing however will cut off the bike intermittently until the coil in the switch opens permenantly. Then anytime its not in neutral the bike will cut the engine.

my vote also goes to the sidestand; make sure you aren't accidentally hitting it though, ive cut off my bike a few times in parking lots like that

Bike seems fine now. I think the guy that had it before me didn't ride it much. Checked the tire pressure and it was 10 in the front and 25 psi in the back. Needs an oil change. Thanks for your help.

10 psi! Your guardian angel probably shut the bike down.
