Possible, I haven't really givin it a look over yet (ride ended at night, then work next day). It really seems like it's gettin starved for oxygen or fuel (a slipped clutch wouldn't explain why it dies in nuetral though...). I'll post the video of it dying with some commentary, hopefully some inmates might recognize the symptoms.

Or is it more likely that there is another culprit altogether, a loose hose perhaps? Any insight would be helpful. I have a vid I'll post tonight that illustrates the issue.

Do you have the most recent tune installed?

True; I didn't realize from reading your earlier post that it died while idling in neutral also. So, throw out my hypothesis.

Next idea. Is the battery healthy and getting a proper charge?

Yes this is the most recent tune, and first long ride (more than 30 minutes) that it has been on since re-map. Before hand the re-map felt great, which led to my question of it being possible for the tune to 'roll back ' on it's own or fail to hold...grasping I know but worht asking.

@Yossarian, I thought that too (rather hoped), but we stuck it on the charger overnight - did not resolve issue.

and 10 fuse it was fine. The outlet is conveniently placed now on my 800 and just wanted to make sure it won't drain
the battery. Much thanks. K
I haven't had any problem and I've used my Gerbings for quite a few miles this fall along with the heated grips and even have the fog lights on some of the time.

Anyone have the Corbin saddle yet? I've have a Corbin on my ST1100 and LOVE it, had one on my F650GS and loved it. Kinda want one for the 800XC but ...

I'm short, have the stock seat in the LOW position.

Looking at Corbin's site it looks like their seat is not adjustable and thus can't be lowered. Nor do they seem to have a "Low" seat for the 800. Corbins tend to raise you a bit anyway so ... I was curious if anyone has one and if the seat raises ya up.

In order for the new tune to load on the bike you have to let the bike idle for a while. You may want to let it idle for 10 minutes or so and see if it still does it. I think it says 10 minutes or until fan turns on. I would go with 10 minutes and see what happens. No they won't "roll back" to another tune.

I might be wrong but I think you're wrong. For the idle reset to work I think you need to run it for 12 minutes AFTER the fan has come on for the first time. The fan coming on proves that it's all up to temperature.

Probably something to do with upcoming EU law. Similar to the reason the power is 94bhp.

I used to think it was a bigger deal but now I just ride with my abs on off road. Its much more forgiving offroad than the bmw abs.

I too have yet to switch it off. Perhaps if it was easier I would, but never had a problem in the gravel or dirt.

ok then 12 minutes. Just to be safe run it 15 minutes. Either way try it.
