Thanks, I thought something was seriously wrong and have been skeptical 
of the bike since my first ride when I believe the Hall Sensors went bad 
and I had to be towed back to the place I purchased it.  The mechanics 
spent the next day diagnosing & fixing the bike and said the fuel 
injectors were not synch'd properly which they weren't but when the bike 
died and the tach was jumping around I've read enough to no now that it 
was the sensors.  Good to get the demons out first eh?
