Oops, 13 xtz took a drink last night.

Big problem fella's, i havent been on in a while, with being busy with the lil girls activities and changing jobs over the last few months and have been riding even less. Need some possible help before i resort to a dealership for service.
Yesterday, i finally was able to take my first good ride of the year which is unlike me cause normally im riding all year round but, we all get busy. Anyways we was riding in a very crouded enviorment because the oil and gas has several of our riding places shut down so everyone went to our old stomping grounds every bit of 1000 plus people Mud Trucks, SxSs, Atvs, Dirt Bikes and whatever else manage. Most of them drunk acting like idiots as usual and parking in the middle of trails blocking the way for us others. and this is where the incident starts.
We was attempting to ride up a creek that we all have rode in and know pretty well. except this it was a lil deeper that most and i was leading the back and i was a lil far from the bank as usual. where the XTZ then began to stall. At this very moment i turned the ignition off. We pulled it back down and out of the creek that we was traveling up. Pulled the Plugs, Drained the Air Box Drained the Clutch and checked the oil. Oil was good very minimal moisture, so we cranked it over and pumped all the water out of the pistons. and put it back together and it fired right back up. let it idle a lil while before we took off.
Once we took off i made it about 50 ft and she stalled and hasnt started since. have pulled to plugs out checked spark checked oil and checked everything else that i could thing of and its just not wanting to start. Is there a possible parking breaking sensor isssue that could keep it from starting is there a tip sensor that could doing this or what. because it was running and just shut down.

Any advice would be nice before it heads to the dealership.

check the fuses on top of the battery , one [don't remember what one] may well be blown ... seems like it's a 15 amp one but maybe a 10 .... had the same thing in mine , I have since gone to resettable circuit breakers replacing all fuses

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Gt I have checked all fuses and none are blown. I'm completely stumped on this, truly don't think it jumped time, because I shut it off so quickly trying to save it how ever, I may have not made it. But it was running fine for about 20 mins before it died the second time before it stalled and hasn't started since.

Also it wasn't smoking when it was running either.

Mine has a tip sensor located under the passenger seat on the frame rail. My understanding is that kills the ignition when activated, parking brake sensor only effects the starter circuit. More than likely something minor. Let us know what you find.

No I was at a old small stomping grounds that it "shut down" called 7 creeks yet many still ride. Fairmont do you know how to reset tip sensor and I have spark fuel and air.

Not sure it is re-settable, I think it just resets by itself. There is a procedure in the manual to test the tilt sensor. I found it in the XTZ repair/service manual under the electrical systems. Depending on the price, it may be something I may stock for future!

Sounds like they are set for 30 degree's, at least that is where they test it at!
