I have a '98 GSXR600. This is my first bike. Today was a nice day so I went for a ride. Checked the oil before I left the house and it was good. 10-15minutes into the ride I just got done taking off from a redlight. Got up to 50-55mph cruising speed and then the bike shuts off and my oil/temp light starts blinking at me. I look at the temp at the time and it read 168. I coast into a parking lot and tried to restart it. Nothing. Wouldn't even turn over. Red light still blinking at me. I'm checking the kill switch and gauges. Everything looks ok. I check all the obvious. Fuel is good. I check the choke lever and noticed it wasn't shut completely. I shut it and try to start it. It starts. Could that be the reason it just shut off?
