1098 stalling then dying.

Hey all, sorry if this has been answered, I searched but found nothing super similar.

I have a 2008 1098, 14.5k miles, just had the 15k service done, had some starter issues so they also replaced the starter clutch, sprag, etc. I was hoping this issue might be fixed with that or new plugs, timing or valve adjustment or something, but it wasnt.

My bike will ride fine for 5-10 miles then start stalling at a stop (in neutral or in gear), each time it stalls, itll start back up but wont go as far without stalling again (5 miles til stall, 3 miles til stall, then 1 mile, etc) and each time itll seem harder to start. then after the 4th or 5th stall, it wont start back up. It is then possible to pop start it but will stall seconds later and not start back up.

Seems exactly like something is draining the battery, but the weird thing is, after stalling, the battery is reading a perfect 12.5-12.6 volts off and 14.2-14.3 volts when the bike is started.

I just got raped for $3100 at the dealer who is kinda far away, I really dont want to spend more money and dont even have the time to haul it back up there anyway. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Is this the same problem since when you bought it but worse? You had 14.5k miles last year so doesn't sound like you've done much riding.

Check for vacuum leaks at your airbox throttle body assembly and your intake manyfolds (use threebond). Disassemble, check and reasemble.

I dont remember it stalling much when I first got it, It also seemed to run alot better when I switched from a lithium battery back to a normal one so I thought that was the problem.

And correct, Only rode it 3 times so far this season, it has 14.6 or so now, im not sure. I only put a few hundred miles on it in a year and a half. Its extremely hard for me to ride, I work 75-85+ hours a week at 2 jobs and I also own/manage 5 rental properties (one of which recently had a big fire so ive been there literally every free night I have after work for the past 3-4 months) and I bodybuild, so on top of being so busy, everywhere I go, I have to take a bunch of tools and food with me. I shouldn't have ever bought the thing but its been my dream bike for awhile and even just looking at its beauty here and there in my garage makes me happy lol. I have an Acura NSX that gets the same exact treatment lol, I put 220 miles on that thing last year.
