Does it die outright? if so, its the tipover sensor killing ignition to the bike.

If it begins to stumble as you're in the corner, are you running it with enough gas? I would assume the baffling wouldnt keep gas away from the pump when you brake and the fluid comes to the front and then as you lean...

get some help, start it up and tip her over on that side w the pillows from your couch on the ground below it... see if you can reproduce it.

You can unplug the switch and jump out the 2 outer wires of the 3. That will eliminate the tip over sensor and let you know for sure if thats the problemo.

Make sure your oil level is adequate before doing this mod and riding the bike again...

Chris,
It definitely sounds like the bank angle sensor. Just bypass it.

Tom,
Just curious? What's the oil level got to do with the tip over sensor?
Or are you thinking if he lays the bike over it'll oil starve before it kills?

I guess you should just ride harder everywhere else and try to get it to repeat itself on other parts of the track. If it kills all over the place jump the switch. If it doesn't, up your game until it does.

if you are running a "dead mans switch" then you do not have to worry about the tip over sensor the bike will die when you go down no matter what.

It is the best way to effectively "kill" an engine, no? I've seen (and caused) some unrepairable engine damage due to it's running while horizontal...

I'm just paranoid probably, but I get that way about engine oil and it's level. Dunno why. I'm sure that even with adequate engine oil levels it will not prevent anything catastrophic, but you know what they say, an ounce of prevention, etc.

bypass it. If u need some help hit me up. I'm working nights so I got all day. Also check ur battery connections. I've had my bike die during wheelies over and over only to find a loose negative terminal.

Fwiw my bike runs laying on its side alot and I've never had any issues. Its a Honda.
