Trackbike problem..

Yesterday at MSRH, during tip in into turn 17(or turn 1 going CW) It seemed as if I leaned over too far, the bike would shut off. Id have to turn the key off, turn it back on and start it(if I did not turn key off and back on the bike would not start) It didnt do it all the time, but it did it about 6 times. and I noticed it happening more if I late broke someone in the turn, which meant Id have to lean farther to make it.


anyhow, My guess is the tip over switch is bad, or something. Its ziptied to the fairing stay.



any ideas?

take it out of the equation and see if it still happens...I'd test it in a parking lot vs. on the track

Not required for CMRA, and kind of a bad idea for road racing, IMO. I noticed you had a dead man's switch, too, and it is also not required for CMRA. Not sure about others orgs, but I know you do have to have one for events like the Texas Mile.

You don't have to have the tip over switch to race, but I'd keep it just because it's better for your engine if you do crash.

Take all the bodywork off and look for any loose connection or wire grounding out. I do this by having the bike at idle and moving the wires around trying to duplicate the issue.

I've also heard that that gen 600RR has tip over switch issues

Bypass it and see, but if you've never had the problem before, it's probably not it

I'd lean toward a wire grounding.

You probably have a clogged fuel pump filter. Buy a NEW fuel filter.

but it only happened at that turn as I was tipping in. I do also think G forces might have been a bit more as I broke harder in a shorter amount of time...

Doesn't cost anything to chase down electrical problems.

It could be that because you zip tied it to your fairings that it's not perfectly level when the bike is straight up. If the tip over swich is leaning to the left or right when your bike leaned the same way it could cause the sensor to trigger thus turning off the bike.

It could also be that your are just a gangster on the track and that you juked your tip over switch.
