Bike Hiccups...Gremblin in the Electronics?

Wondering if anyone has had this issue. MY 2009 R1200GSA stalls out for just a second and then resumes motoring without stopping. The Yellow Triangle and Engine Icon on the Dash lights up when this happens. It started at 42 K on the OD and now the bike has 53K. Lots of miles on in the past 2 months because I rode it across the country like this. It never got worse, but never got better. The BMW dealer cannot duplicate the issue. It does not throw a code and there doesn't seem to be any common RPM or gear it happens in. I can ride all day and not have an issue, then it will happen three times in 10 minutes.

Note: At 42K I had a new clutch, left Throttle Body and Fuel Pump installed by the dealer. They also replaced the shut off switch on the right handlebar thinking that was causing the problem.

It sounds like your fuel pump controller has a minor short. Does it do it more when it is wet or humid out?

I don't think so, but haven't really taken note of it.
