so i bought my first bike back in OCT. 2014. Shortly after i got the back i went for a short ride of about 30-45 mins, on the way back to the house the bike shut off and the battery was dead...I replaced the battery had no problem until a month ago, now it is doing the same thing. The catch is it will only do it when i am at speeds above 65 MPH. Any ideas please help me!!!!!

Stator and/or regulator rectifier would be a good first guess. If the bikes dieing during riding, it's usually a charging system problem.

If you do it yourself you would have to check the voltage of each to determine which or if both are the problem. Probably wanna take it in to a professional and get checked out if you can't do that.

Gotta go with stator or rectifier. Best bet is to do both at the same time. Definitely check charging system first.
Yes, good point. Usually when one goes, so does the other. Make sure your mechanic checks the voltage on both. Any good responsible mechanic, even if they pop the stator cover off and find nothing but ash cause the stator is so fried (exaggeration), he should still check the regulator rectifier and vice versa. Any mechanic who doesn't or won't, you probably shouldn't use.

As this is an '05-'06.... how hot is your ECU getting? It's in the tail, right above the exhaust. Lots of heat in that area.

the ECU is fine it does not get hot... that is what i thought it was at first but then i started leaning to the stator, due to battery not keeping a charge i will check the both of those this coming weekend and get back to you guys on what the volts are on everything
