Considering you've just had a dead battery, I'm going to go with charging system, as over voltage can fry them while under voltage can leave them dead too. Cdi could also be gone, but if so then as a symptom of charging system.

This is going to require some actual mechanic work to solve. GET A MULTIMETERS and diagnose it properly before swapping out parts and hoping again. Like I mentioned way up there.

Thanks for the advice. Got a multimeter now and commencing the checks on all wiring. Nothings worked up till now and it's made ever more difficult that the problem is sporadic.

Those issues are the worst. You'd almost prefer the crankshaft smashing through the cilinderwalls. At least then you know what the issue is. Electric gremlins are the worst.

Good luck man.

Problem solved (time may yet prove me a liar, but all has been going well for a couple of days) turns out it was corrosion of the kill switch connectors which caused it to sporadically activate and earth the electrics through the frame of the bike, causing rapid power loss and random shut off of the engine.

Hope this helps others.

Good find!
I once unearthed a dead spider from same location which had been causing an intermittent circuit. Took a while to find that one.
