04 Starting Issues

So I have a 04 R6 and it was running great until I was going down the highway yesterday and the spedo cluster starting going crazy. It kept resetting and eventually just turned off. The bike was still running and I pulled off and turned it off. It wouldn't turn back on. The neutral light turned on but the spedo and temp gauge were off. It wouldn't turn over or anything. Found out it was a bad wire from the battery to the ignition relay and swapped it out and it was working fine until again today it did the same thing. Any ideas as to what it is? All of the wires and connections seem to be fine.

Re: 04 Starting Issues

sounds like you got electrical issues. the bike will run without the instrument cluster hooked up. so if it's stalling out and you are getting goofy readings on the dash you definitely have electrical issues.
one area of concern for these bikes is the wires close to the radiator fan. check those. the fan often was cutting the wiring there.
