Same symptom when you start engine...
Your bike has a "load shedding relay", which kills the electrical power to the lights and some other systems during starting (but obviously not to the engine ignition and FI systems) to reduce the load on the battery during starting. That might be the first place to look to see if you have a defective relay. The relay is inside the fuse/relay box under the seat.
