start simple because that symptom is really strange and I don't get it. I'm curious if the battery bolt is loose because there is no way it should go dead out of the blue. But it should run with no battery if the stator is charging. maybe it's not charging AND the battery bolt is loose. IF it happens again see if you can switch to neutral (maybe you already do that to coast) and see if the neutral light is lit green. have you checked the battery charge and the voltage when running? are the plugs tight? are the plug wires worn out and shorting against the valve cover?

look for some electrical related issues. IS there a neutral safety switch on that bike? for instance, the kickstand safety switch (if equipped)...and the safety feature where you can't start it in gear? I don't know where that is located but find out! Maybe that is triggering from vibration and acting as a kill switch. Speaking of kill switches, maybe the RUN/OFF switch on your right thumb is vibrating into OFF.

It runs good except it shuts off on me around 60-70 mph depending on the wind.
You say the wind affects when it shuts off. could you be more specific?

You look much less stupid locking your handlebar lock every night no matter where you park it than looking at the empty space where your bike was last parked.

@oggytherebel has a point.. could be as simple as kick stand safety switch acting up.

1st generation Rebel doesn't have safety interlock of 2nd gen. thus I didn't think about it, and why it is important to indicate year of bike in your signature..

Hey guys good morn... what I mean by the wind affecting it is really an rpm issue I guess. If im going against the wind it will shut down at a lower speed than if I have a tail wind. As of last week tho its been hard to monitor exactly what speed because my speedo stopped working... but that's another story.
Also a the other day I left my key on and drained the battery. I had to pop the clutch all day to get her going and after a few hours and like 30 riding miles she started back up with the start button. I put a new backup battery in anyways and the connections are tight.
When the bike shuts down on me and I'm coasting I still able to use blinkers, horn etc. The bike does have a kickstand safety switch. The kill switch is pretty tight, I don't see ot being that.
As far as the plug wires go, I do notice on one side that it isn't as snug to the plug as the other. I can feel it clicking around if I jiggle it...Not loose by any means, could that be it? 🤯

A bad plug boot connection tends to cause a misfire..
Rebel will run if you pull a plug wire, badly but they will run.

You can discount any portion of the lighting charging electrical system..
Rebel ignition system is totally independent of charging system..

if condition is ignition electrical in nature it will be confined to the wiring shown in image.. All other electrical systems are irrelevant.

Ok so the green paths on the diagram or all of that? Is the ignition control module the same as the cdi unit? Jeez

I guess I can't be sure it's not a fuel issue. I'm gonna pull the petcock off of the tank later so I can eliminate that possibility. I've never done it so it should be fun lol. The gas does seem to flow ok out of
the line but at top speed maybe not enough. I'll let you guys know later... thanks!!!

I don't see how fuel flowing at slow speed is going to decrease at higher speed. If the line going from the tank to the carb flows well, don't think it could be a fuel issue.
