Mine stalled twice the second day I had it out. Both times at stop lights while it was idling normally at about 1350. It didn't stumble and die, just died instantly like you turned the key. It started right back up both times...and it hasn't happened since (knock wood!).
I rode the 1098S at Pro Italia. I thought it might be the same bike that you rode. I figured I just screwed up the clutch or something. The second time it stalled, I know I had the clutch pulled in about to stop at a light. I was rolling down from 10 mph, 5 mph, then just before I stopped, it cut out completely. That time I knew it wasn't my fault.
Yup, the same bike..ha..haa. I was done with my test ride, put it on neutral, released the clutch and as was backing it into the curb, that was when the engine quit.
JB, did I talk to you that weekend, are you no 21?
I too have had my 1098S for over a week now and it has stalled every day I've rode it. It also died on Mulholland Dr with only 31 miles on it due to a pinched fuel line. They say it came like that from the factory! I had to park it, catch a cab home, and go pick it up!!! Taking it to Willow next week - no red lights there so it shouldn't stall...
If it's slip on related, then most likley it has to do with the kits ECU (fuel mapping). The factory TPS setting may be too "little" and it's causing the bike to go into a fail safe - cut out mode. Just the sort of glitch that could happen here and there but not all the time. It could also be something to do with the timing/spark map, and an ignition glitch.
I have a little more then 400 miles on mine, no stalls. I have been riding twisties, highway and a bit of traffic. Maybe it's the the full termi, my idling rpm is a bit higher because of the termi system. 1450
