Question XB12XT Engine Stopped - temporarily

Mid-morning errand doing 50mph when engine just stopped. No stuttering or misfiring just completely dead. Speedo and lights still working - did not notice any error lights but it was in bright sunshine. Coasted to side of road. Called nearest HD dealer for hints at Troubleshooting they said tow it in. Frustrated I took off seat looked for loose connection - none found. Tried restarting and it fired up - rode it home about a mile w/o issue. Anyone have any ideas of how what this could be or how to troubleshoot? Reluctant to ride anywhere until I can figure out what's going on.

Fixed

I broke down n brought it to a dealer that still works on Buells, Livermore HD in Livermore, Ca., issue was the fuel pump not meeting pressure specs. Replaced and runs fine, actually better .... Will be tinkering with old fuel pump, might be the pressure regulator.

at least it's better now. how much did it cost you and how long did the dealer take to fix it?

Dealer took about a week, and most of that was waiting for the fuel pump to come in... cost was $760+ change.. almost half of that for the pump, sales tax and labor the rest.. too much I think, but with the problem codes I was getting.... and I had already spent $$$$ on new crank positioning sensor and head temp sensor which I'll keep for future issues or include with bike if or when I sell it...

as we get farther from the day buell closed their doors the cost to fix them is only going to keep increasing. Parts are limited and those with knowledge to work on them will dwindle as well..

parts is probably the bigger issue. knowledge to fix them isn't anything crazy. the buells aren't one of a kind or anything.
