Question 2005 Burgman 400 Rpm drop to 0 and goes back

Hey forum! I was wondering if anyone have any ideas to my problem is?


When going around 85mph based on the speedometer on the highway and rpm is around 8k-8.5k, the rpm sometimes sudenly drops to 0 and drops my speed to around 75mph.

In order to go back to the original rpm I always had to pull the throttle as far as i can till it goes back to normal.

Thanks in advance!

Dodgy Fuel filter? Could be something electrical too.

Gotta be something electrical. No way your RPM really drops to 0 when you're doing 85. No FI indication?
Could be one of the ignition interlocks, e.g. side stand switch, something in the right switch assy or similar.

Liamjs, Hussein's problem is going to have you seeing filters in your sleep.

Thanks for the replies, after reading other forums that seemed to have a similar problem, it seemed to lead to the kickstand and the spring of the kickstand. It seems that there is a possibility of the spring vibrating to the extent of messing with the engine cut off? I'll probably buy a replacement since it really isn't that much. -the problem only occurs randomly when above 8k rpm, so limiting myself at 75mph based on speedometer is no big deal.

Like you guys said it could be electrical, so I'll also check if there is any loose or damaged cables.

For checking the fuel filter, I read that getting to the fuel filter is a big nuisance haha.

Thanks again!
