Check you battery connections, could be they came just loose enough under hard braking to kill the bike.

I posted earlier but guess it was deleted.

If you panic stop and dont pull in the clutch, locking up the rear tire can stop the engine since its not allowed to spin freely.

A carbed bike could starve if the gas doesn't get down to the engine(gravity drain) but that would have to be a long duration without gas.

Also if the idle is set low it can die due to the transition from power to idle circuit.

If the FI light comes on again or problem reproduces, then look into it.

If the batt terminals were loose all the lights would be out.

You really don't want to pull in the clutch in a panic stop. At the track the major braking areas are the equivalent of a panic stop. I don't pull in the clutch, nor do any of the riders that I know. Take a look...





And here is Larry Meyers on my bike running 45's.
