You got to learn to pull the clutch in. :D probably just one of those odd glitches you get from time to time. The V4 Tuono Factories suffered from this, and needed a remap to solve it.

I've had this happen also, but only when I ride 2 up with the woman as I ride very conservative with her on the bike. Never had it happen when I'm riding it as it was designed to be.

My advise is to ride it harder. No need for a dealership appointment in my opinion.

Just got back from the dealer...no codes but there is a fuel pump "update". I dont know what that is except it is a new fuel pump...that was actually ordered yesterday when they were going thru the list of customer vin's...I hope they get it this week and I can get it installed next Saturday...getting new shoes on Wed

It's been a while since I could explore the forum (laptop was sick since 23Oct)......but deep in the confines of what i'll call 'my memory'...... I recall reading stuff in this forum about stalling.......and I thinkit was traced to fuel affecting filters in some vin's........ maybe that's why your's is getting the pump replaced as the filters are probably mush and restricting supply.

Mine has been well behaved for 10k kms over 9 months or so (not been doing so many kms last couple of months.. :( )....but I can buy non-ethanol 95 octane everywhere in Aus.... even though the GT is supposed to be 10% E-ok. ;)

Hope that new pump does the job without any future issues ;)

I went to the dealer yesterday and the replaced the fuel pump under warranty. Made a few bonus points with the KTM tech by having almost no fuel in it...said he appreciated that. Hopefully it takes care of the issue

Couple of times I have rolled up to a red light, but did not down shift quickly enough. With clutch left out, bike dies easily, abruptly, and surprisingly. Coast to the curb, pull in the clutch, and hit the starter button, and engine fires right back up.

Conclusion: At least in my case, it's user error.

This bike does NOT like to be operated at less than 3000 rpms. Take it to 2000 (as in coasting to a red light), and she will die on you!

Cheers Clogan, you are correct of course but these guys are suffering from Ethanol fuel contamination problems. My Aussie fuel is unadulterated clean petrol - unlike that cats peee E-blend the rest of the world seems to have to endure. :lol:

Even though the Gt is rated as 10% E-tolerant, a rider can never trust that - unscrupulous fuel suppliers might just try to get away with 15% for some more profit margin (errr "allegedly" your honour.. ;) )... or some vin's of the GT just got a batch of fuel pumps with filters that cannot cope with Ethanol.

It's a really bad problem in the UK, and I gather the USA has no normal gas available. lucky I can buy clean 95 octane all over the country (for now :roll: ).

Cheers

Ps thought just bubbled into head space...... my GT is fine from idle to :o revs.....are you sure yours isn't showing early signs of collapsing fuel filter material?
