    I had a similar problem on the Guzzi. Suspected the side stand switch, so Wrench bypassed it. Problem turned out to be wrong spark plugs installed, which were melting the caps. Got new caps, put right spark plugs in, problem fixed.

    Hey, at my age running hot and loss of spark is a common problem.

    I had to schedule a service... The bike will be picked up tomorrow for a regular service and issue addressed. I am printing out all suggestions and will send them along with the bike tomorrow.

    I have not had the problem occur again in the past 500 miles. It is going to be hard to find the source when the problem is discontinuous.

    I will keep you up with the findings!
