Switch ?

I have been having an issue with my bike occasionally dying for no reason, I have been through the carbs and have them running good, sometimes when it dies I will push the starter and nothing, after shutting the key off it will fire up first crank. Any ideas?

I'm voting for the key since it will restart after moving the key.

I found a faulty bullet connector while cleaning my ignition switch, after repairing that and cleaning my switch my bike is running great, I think that bullet connector
was the culprit, although my switch was pretty grimy inside. Thanks for the advice!

That ignition switch just about got me killed on several occasions. Make sure you have the puck tightly sealed. I wrapped it with a zip tie to make sure it wouldn't vibrate apart.
