08 CBR 1000 shuts off while riding

I have had my 08 for a couple years now and in that time my bike has shut off about three times while riding. I didn't think much of it, just a glitch or something. But in the past three weeks it has happened three times. It happens when I down shift from second to first. It will just shut off as if the kill switch was hit. The gauge stays lit and I can simply press the ignition button and start it right up. It seems to only happen when I let out the clutch slowly at slow speeds, as if the motor isn't getting enough fuel. It's not a huge deal but an inconvenience and obviously something that shouldn't be happening. Any ideas?

Mods: PCV, full Akro Evo, Pair valve, and some cosmetics

Check the killswitches for any lose connections, especially your battery terminals.

Re: 08 CBR 1000 shuts off while riding

The kick stand itself was nice and tight. But the switch inside might have been losing connection. I took the switch out about a week ago and so far it hasn't happened again. Too soon to mark the problem solved...
