Street triple fault light on when taking a passenger.

Hi

I am hoping someone could give me few suggestions here. My bike It seems does not like female passengers any more

I am having a 2010 street triple for two years, all been fine. However, recently my friend ride it and carried his girl, the fault line turned on while they were riding and the engine switched off itself.

We got the bike back home and parked for a night, the bike seemed OK on the next day and we had few rides (solo) after that. However, the fault code turned on soon enough when I took my lady on the back. Then, I put the bike to the shop to had a check about wiring relates to engine switch. All seems ok.

We then had few rides again (friends had rides as well). All good. Finally, the light turned on again this morning as soon as I took my lady on the back. Very strange

I think that this bike have a low angle cutoff sensor under the seat (if the bike fall on it's side, this stop engine). So maybe this sensor is in trouble. Try to bypass it...

Has the bike ever been over on its side in a crash or even a garage tip over?
