Tonight I had a really nice consistent, repeatable non-start occurence. I was able to pull the code and it was a c12, CKP Sensor not present. The manual says the sensor should read 184-276 ohms. Mine read ~2.1K ohms which is off by an order of magnitude from the manual value. This could be my problem or it could be a typo in the manual. My connector (which oddly enough is directly behind the tool kit container) was a little ratty looking so I cleaned it up somewhat. I still have a background issue that's throwing a c28,c29 code but I think that is a separate distractor. The case where the engines shuts down and won't restart I'm pretty certain involves the CKP sensor. It is one of only a couple of signals that will prevent the engine from starting even though it turns over and the fuel pump runs and all the rest.

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.

Pull the Speedo off the tank and check the mating of the cable plug to the speedo unit. I had this problem and that was the fix.

I bought the Clymers repair book on-line. It does an exceptional job at listing all the codes. And, for those of you who've bought these books before, they do an exceptional job at covering all types of maintenance. I highly suggest getting this book if you're a DIY kind of repair guy. I have one for my 1978 GS750EC.
