So my intermittent problem has now become mittent. My symptom was: bike starts normally when cold (this was constant throughout). Occasionally bike would die when stopped at idle. Bike would not restart until the engine totally cooled off. This past week I could not go more than 1.5-2 miles before the bike would die. The CKPS was looking more and more like the culprit and the code displayed was consistently c12, so ....
Last night I measured the CKP resistance when I got home and it was moderately normal (500 ohms vs 180-270). I rode the bike up and down my driveway until the bike successfully failed and then checked the reading again. This time it was megohms. Barring a bad solder joint connecting the cable to the sensor (not an altogether unlikely possibilty but one I'm not willing to investigate until I have an alternate part in hand) I think the offending part has been located. Got a replacement coming from fleabay. We'll see how that works out.
I hate driving to work.
