On the way home from work today my GS just died accelerating from a stop light. I was stopped at the light and when I started accelerating the thing just died. I popped the seat off and found one a blown fuse. The temp/gas gauge and most likely the Motronic went out. I swapped the fuse with something else (didnít know what it was) to limp home on.

That was a little scary, I was in the midst of accelerating from a dead stop and the thing just died. Thatís never happened before and Iím kindaí hoping it doesnít happen again.

Anyone ever have this happen, or have any idea of what cause the bike to die?
