Hey yall, my 1098 stalled twice in the 2 months that I had it. I took it to a shop in Las Vegas where I live and the mechanic told me he would adjust the cylinders and remove the charcoal can. He said the cylinders were not equally firing because the bike came from Cali where the temperature is much cooler. Suffice to say, I have ridden in 105 temps. in stop and go traffic and no stalling in 250 miles. when it did stall, it was in extreme heat and stop and go. So far, so good and keeping fingers crossed.
