So I was out riding on my XB-600 yesterday and there was a set of train tracks, unfortunately, there was no sign warning that the road was ridiculously uneven with the tracks (to the tune of 4-5"). So I hit it pretty hard with my bike, and then the oddness began. I hit the throttle and it moved, then I'd hit the brakes and afterwards the throttle would not work. However, turning the key left then back on again allowed the throttle to work until the next time I hit the brakes. This worked well enough for the next 5 minutes. After stopping for a second, nothing worked. Twisting the throttle gave nothing. Everything on the 12V line works fine. The brake lights work fine when the brakes are activated. I've reading full on the voltmeter up front, lights and signals work as expected. I checked the 30A fuse and its in fine shape. Of course I was 8 miles away from home base and new to this area so I don't really know any one with a pickup truck, so I ended up pushing the bloody beast back home.
So currently I have a mostly dead XB-600. I checked the controller and it looks okay. The wires around it look fine. I checked under the instrument panel and the wires there look okay too (particular attention to the break wire electricals). My guess is that something is going on with the "motor brake." Any thoughts?
