EBS relay?- New 1078

I was hoping (and after I read 1000 threads) that I would escape the problem.. but no

2.500kms on the clock of a 1078 and last night in the middle of nowhere I 'lost 1-2 cylinders' (this is the feeling you get I think others wrote). Funny thing is that the bike was cool (outside temp +15C) when i fired up and indeed it 'sounded like a Vtwin' with fuel smell all over the place. 10kms riding in the highway I switched off engine for 5 mins, started again and .. all well. I only hope that I did not screw up the catalytic converter with all that unburned fuel in the cylinder(s) in those 10kms of problematic riding.

So that you know (i.e. not many kms on the clock and not in high heat conditions). I am assuming that the new 1078 HAS an EBS relay..In search of the relay now.. Why don't they fix it I wonder..

Thought the EBS had been junked in favour of the slipper clutch on the 1078 ??
