    Which direction were you turning in, and how quickly?

    To the right both times and around 20 or something like that and the second time was less than that

    Check the routing of the wiring harness near the headstock and headlight. Look for a loose plug or worn insulation.

    You think it's something to do with the headlights wire harness? I did install a led headlight. The bike will start right back up after it dies.

    Turning the bars could wiggle a loose plug connection, or cause a worn wire to contact the frame, causing a short. Once the bars are straightened, the electric faries might be free to roam and perform their magic.

    ^that^. It could also be floats set too low, but that would cause a stall when braking in a straight and when turning in any direction at low speed.
