Are you sure turning ignition on/off is the temporary cure? If it does not start, try walking away for a couple of minutes, leaving ignition on and then try starting again. If it runs, you know it is some other problem, such as fuel flow.

Welcome john,when you say totally dead do you mean when you turn the key or when you push the starter button?

I would disconnect the battery and check the block connector below your ignition switch for corrosion first,then i would check the fuses(ignition mainly) and carrier for same.Then I would then check all the safety cut out switches for faulty connections,side stand,maybe clutch,kill switch,neutral switch and tip over switch if fitted.The last guy on here had a faulty side stand switch but his pan would cut out on a run as well.They are also noted for the diaphragm failure on the petrol tap but that`s not yours.
