When I say died, I actually mean the battery (which is a fairly new Odyssey) was dead so it's obviously not charging. Battery going "click-click" in other words. Had to sit and wait for a small reservecharge to get the bike started. Will charge the battery up and check it. Then I'll start with brushes and voltage regulator troubleshooting. From there move to diode board if that's not the issue. If that's not the case will go through the rest and of course check all connections.
