F800GS random cut out when pulling clutch in.

Hi,
My GS, 2014 model with just around 2000 miles on, has done this twice so far recently.
1st time going up to a junction, in 3rd, pulled clutch to change down and it just stopped dead like someone had flicked a switch. Started up no problem.
2nd time was this weekend, in 3rd again, normal road riding changing from 3rd up to 4th, dies for a few seconds, clutch was on way out by the time I'd realised so it basically bumped itself off again after a second or so.
Not really bad, but will it develop further and has anyone else experienced it? Both situations were no drama, but I doubt there's times it could happen when it could have been worse, doing an overtake etc.

Thanks,

Graham

As of yet dunno, it came from a Bmw dealer, and was a demo before me. 12 month service due in March so will get it all checked out then. Just wondered if anyone else has had the same.

I think the problem is that you only have 2k miles on a year old bike!

I've hardly had time to ride since I got my F8 2 weeks ago and have al,oat 1k on the clock.

Anyhow, I'd bless the warranty and bring it into BMW.

Typically this is the Idle Air Controller, IAC. Take it to the Dealer to check for codes then recalibrate it. Takes a minute or 2 once it's hooked up. It's under warranty and stalling in traffic isn't safe. A GS911 can calibrate it also.

Had something similar... don't give it any gas when you are starting up as that will fool with your TPS. I quit doing that per a tip on this forum and have not had the problem since.

I only got the bike at the end of October with 800 miles on it, tis actually at 2400 now, not 2k I thought lol. So 1600 miles in 3 months in winter ain't bad for someone who's usually sat in front of the tv isn't bad! Never gas it when starting, how that would affect the running two hours later I'm not sure lol

Strange, have you ever tried to sort it or had dealer have a look? Cheers.

Nope, bought when it was out of warranty a year ago with 10000km on the clock. If it dies I just hit the start button again, no worries.

What is the voltage on the system when it's idling? I had similar problems when the alternator was on it's way out. It wasn't fully dead, but at idle, the charging voltage would hover around 13V. And every once in a while, the bike would idle on idling. True to Murphy's law, it would always be a busy traffic intersection where I had to push to bike over to the footpath. My theory is that the electronics did not like being run undervolted. There could be other gremlins in the system, but this is really simple to test.

My bike started this crap with about 40K miles on the clock.
Resetting with GS911 did not fix, but removing the IAC assembly and cleaned the gunk off the end of it
.... and let me tell you I was SURPRISED by how much gunk was there ...
re-assembling and then resetting IAC has cured my problem.

My next step would have been to replace iAC .... Reaver has thread here somewhere on how the early production IAC were not sealed against the elements as well as the could be and thus had some issues....

Haha, well, I may get around to measuring the voltage but not messing with anything else while it's under warranty, hell, thats a novelty for me having someone else responsible for fixing AND paying for it lol.
I'll spend my spanner time on my ktm

Just an update,
bike went in for service at 12 months old, and ecu was reprogrammed as i mentioned this issue.
No reoccurrances yet after almost 4 months, mebbe an ecu map gremlin, maybe just coincidence, but seems to be sorted now.
