Interesting. I wonder if altitude or barometric pressure changes are somehow fooling the FI system and leaning the bike out to the point of stalling. It would be prudent to get the latest firmware version installed. I have heard lots of reports about bikes stalling in rain which usually occurs in conjunction with low barometric pressure.

That explanation fails to explain the correlation of the problem with fuel level, but perhaps there is some tie in that is not obvious. It would seem unlikely that it is a cannister problem, but certainly possible. Cisco, are you sure the tech by-passed the cannister properly? Did you see him do it?
my favorite bike - R1200GS
