Bike issues far from home...
I'm about 1.5 hours from home and my 2007 daytona 675 is starting to act up. I first noticed issues this morning after a pretty long and spirited ride. At low RPMs in first gear it felt like it might die. Got to a light and it almost stalled on me. Then I started to notice the LCD flickering a little bit. Got to where I was going, turned the bike off for an hour, turned it back on and the LCD screen was super dark. Hit the starter and got the dreaded "click" and dash reset. Did that three times. Turned the key to the off position, turned it back on, and quickly hit the starter when the gauges were still sweeping, and it started up and got me back to my hotel without issues.
So, I need some advice. The problem seems to be electrical, probably R/R? I'm supposed to go home tomorrow or the day after. Should I try to ride it home, or could this current issue fry my ECU or do additional damage? I'd rather not tow it 1.5 hours back to my place... but I also don't want to total my bike over something that could have been avoided.
Your advice is appreciated, thank you.
