XL1200 ltd randomly dies
I recently bought a 2000 XL1200 ltd, starts and idlesgood but it will occasionally die while it’s running.
When I push the start button I'll get the"START" message on the display but it won't crank. After letting itsit for one minute it will start and run just fine. I don’t get any warnings.
Is this an electrical issue or is there something else goingon that is keeping the engine from re-starting?
Compression is even at 110 but it will only run between33 and 44 mph at WOT. I sometimes feel a “kick” and I suddenly getmore power but not every time I go at "floor it"
Thanks in advance for your help.

sounds like your cat converter is moving around in your exhaust

What is your max RPM at full throttle? Does sound electrical to me.

Does it still have the oil pump or is it premix? You may have a oil line that came off

Air getting by will also straighten the plug while trying to get out.
I dont have pics but the ones I've seen look like a baseball from the tumbling.

I found what was causing it to die... simple enough, a loose lanyard switch.
