bike died, need help!!!

Ok so I drove my bike from my house to pearland (45 min drive) bike ran great the whole time, never got over 185. When I got here I was slowing down at a stop light and it just died on me, It turned right back on but when I put it in gear it died again, so I waited a min and it started right up and let me ride about 40 ft before dieing again, so I pulled over, looked around at it,(5 mins) then started it up and started to ride, after about half a mile, same thing... So I played the waiting game again and it made it the little ways I needed to go, so I let it idle and it never got over 223 and the fan was kicking on... Idk what's going on..

Back story, I recently detailed my bike and all I took of was the fairing s, tank, and exhaust, and the radiator hoses, I did refill the radiator and burp the system... please help me out. Lol its hot out here, call if u would like 9792998679

O and its an 05 636

check the level again. Its easy to THINK it's burped. If you removed the tank, make sure the fuel lines are not kinked

Many temp sensors are at the top of the radiator. If the fluid level doesn't reach it, they will read low and give a false sense of security.

I was thinking the same thing. Try jumping the kickstand plug with a paperclip.

unplug the kickstand. It should be about a foot and a half up the frame from where the kickstand is mounted. Then just shove a paperclip or something metal and bridge the connections of the two prongs. Or you could just cut the wire and splice them together if you don't mind a quick hack job.

Ya all that I c is there is the wires (wrapped, so not individual wires) going into the kickstand housing, its not like a plug, just goes into it. Then I can fallow the wire back but it goes up underneath the tank and I don't have tools to move the tank

I think I'm just going to try and get it back home where I have tools and then try and fix the kickstand.
