Anybody have thier MV cut out on them when coming to a stop? I know the RC51 suffers from this, and is easily fixed with a DIY mod, but this has never happenned to me until today...TWICE.

1st time I was coming to a stop sign, I pull in the clutch, let off the gas, and she quits. She starts right back up without hesitation, and temperature was only at 207. But it was hot as hell outside, like 91 degrees.

2nd time, I was pulling into my driveway, and it did the same damn thing.

She starts back up no problem, but that causes a little concern to me.I came up to several stop lights inbetween the two and it didn't happen. It's never happenned until today either. It's running like a champ, and purring just fine...only, she quit on me twice :wtf:

Anybody else? Know the problem and/or a solution?

oicdn...yes...this happened several times on my 750. Sometimes at a light and once as I was exiting a highway. As you said, it started right back up. It was disconcerting - but I was trading in the 750 on the 910r so I didn't bother to have it checked out. I have almost 200 miles on the 910r and no signs of trouble.

Yeah...it was really wierd. No hesitation before hand, not stuttering, nothing....it just cut out like I had hit the kill switch when I pulled in the clutch.

Kinda freaky. Too bad the closest MV dealer is 400 miles away..otherwise, I woulda dropped her off today....

*edit...yeah I was looking for that thread, and couldn't find it.....

Certainly ya getta it checked out. Maybe running a bit rich. :eek:
My thoughts exactly!
I'll let you know in a few day as it will be on the dyno toot sweet to see how it's fueling. Rich mixture can cause a flame out and a stall.

Happened to me a couple times the first few times I rode it. Hasn't happened since although I did explain problem to my service tech. @ 600 mile service.

It happened to me on my first ride, I was pulling into a servo and was slowing for oncoming traffic pulled in the clutch and off like the kill switch was engaged. Hasn't happened since but while I was warming it up before a ride on Sunday it stalled while idling.

the r6 has this problem in 03. Its usually the TPS that is either bad or sticking. I would check that

please let us know what you find out - i just got a 2002 evo2, and i'm noticing the same thing. doesn't seem too dangerous, as it only seems to happen when i stop the bike, but it's definitely not right. i still have to take mine in to be checked over, and it may be a tps/fueling issue as others have suggested, but i'd be interested in hearing what you find.

Stalling problem

Hello guys,
no, no answers to the problem of stalling...just another addition: my bike, an F4 1000 mod 2005 stalls as well: not often and not on rough roads, just whenever it feels like it. I need some help as well. Does anyone have any idea or suggestions as to how to go about fixing the prob?
Thanks

Alfredo

I read on a FAQ somewhere smebody was having the same issues. They said the problem is caused by the sparkplugs??? I haven't had the issue, nor have I replaced my plugs, but it's worth a shot when it's maintenance time to see if that was actually the problem.

Yep,

In order of ease, here are the possibilities:

1) replace plugs with CR9EIX
2) check and likely adjust Throttle bodies and CO%
3) eprom


I've never heard of a failed TPS on these bikes to the poster above, FYI.
