VRSCA Shut off at 60mph and won't start

riding my 2003 VRSCA at about 60mph and it just shut off. No warning. Has gas, has spark, can hear the fuel pump run when I turn on the ignition, replaced relays, tried another working fuel module/pump assembly, cranks over fine???? any suggestion on what else to change?

Check the grounds, especially the one on the front head.

Borrow a fuel line pressure gauge from your auto parts store (Autozone/Advance,O'Rileys etc.) and test the pressure. Takes about 1/2 minute to ensure fuel is getting to the fuel rail. It should hook up to the connector between the stacks on the right side of the bike, just behind the vertical coolant line.
55-60 psi is normal.
Could also be the CPS (Crank Position sensor). I don't know how to test it.

Everything is JMHO. Accuracy is not assured.

Check the wire above the fuel box. Mine burned through from rubbing on my 2003 VRSCA and caused the bike to do the very same thing. Scary feeling. If you check your fault codes, see if it reads ignition coils error. The burnt wire causes it. It may also cause the ECM fuse to blow.
