Default 2012 cross roads complete power loss at 110 km/h

Hey all,

I have a 2012 Cross Roads Classic LE. Riding into work today the bike lost all power! Motor shut off, speedo shut off, even the digital part! Lasted a couple seconds then lights came back on. Hit the start button and ran fine rest of the way.

Also, I get like a whining nois coming from the rear end. sounds like a pully or belt?

Any tips or comments?

Thanks

PS any VIC owners in the Barrie Ont area?

Tighten your battery terminals - add star washers first if you don't want them to work loose again.

Rear noise could be belt alignment, belt tension, or brake pads rubbing the disc.

Battery cables are loose, belt is too tight.

Dealer says he wants to replace circuit board. Not sure if this is right

If he wants to replace the whole bike under warranty let him.
If he wants to replace stuff that you foot the bill for, tell me to put star washers on the battery terminals and tighten them up.

Of course, you can do it yourself for about twentyleben dollars cheaper.

You can smear bees wax or bag balm or voodoo elixir or just about anything gooey on the contact areas of the belt. If it stops squealing the problem is at the belt. Alignment and tensioning are both described in the manual.

Again, the dealer can get an upgrade on his Aruba tickets if you cut him loose chasing belt squeal or you can do some detective work.

Pop warns you though sometimes belt chirp is a stroll down a dark street of broken dreams. More than one full grown man carries a tub of goo around in his saddlebag either out of too lazy, too cheap or thoroughly beat down by the chirp monster.

It's still under warranty so he can replace everything and chase the chirp for me! I hope it's nothing serious that's all

Bonaire is just a pond hop away and has a way better reef.
