Why does my '05 GSXR turn off when forks are turned straight?

I have an '05 GSXR 600. Have had no problems with it until randomly last night. Luckily I was just turning into my neighborhood and it shut off mid turn at about 10MPH. Wouldn't turn over after I pulled over. Then I turned the bars to the side and it fired up and I made it home. Then this morning, I turned it on and warmed her up. Got on and straightened the bars to go and it immediately turned off! Wouldn't turn over right after it stalled out. Then I turned by bars to the side and it started up again. Then straightened and it turned off!
What could this be?
Is it a short? If so, where?

Any info would be appreciated!
Thanks,
-Triple T

You probably have a wire chaffed in the steering head area that is making contact intermittantly.
Pain in the , I know, but you will have to get up in there and inspect, find bad wire and repair.

Yea I found out that it was a wire making contact. I gotta figure out which one now, which I'm not looking forward to. My wiring harness is all over the place. What would be required to repair it?

Yeah^^^
More than likely it's just damaged insulation on the wire and wrapping it with elec tape will keep it from making contact.
Make sure the wire isn't broken inside the insulation. This kind of damage can be the most frustrating.
It's possible for the wire to look normal but the conductor inside can be broken. When it moves just right the little wires inside can break contact and then move the other way and all is well. On color coded wire that kind of damage sometimes look like a white-ish place where the insulation stretched or maybe not.
If the damage is inside you will have to cut the wire where the break is and install a wire splice. Auto parts store will have everything you need.
