Random stalling

Any one ever encounter random stalling? Its happened to me twice, once at a set of lights and again in the garage when I got home.

Cheers.

What is the Idle RPM? Were you completely stopped and at idle when it stalled? or were you braking and almost stopped at the time? The more info you share, the easier it will be for members of this forum to give you accurate answers.

I was stopped at idle both times, and the bike just died. Just wondering if it was a normal thing. (A quirk of the bike) I also have 23k on the bike as well.

Yes, no moving forward without knowing the present warm idle RPM.

It's usually 1200, then occasionally drops to 1000. I just bought the bike and have only been riding it for about 2 weeks. It came from a dealership and just went through and inter provincial inspection.

Increase Idling RPM to 1300 and see if it stalls again. it may be your riding style . If RPM drops below 1000, likely bike will stall on slow ride or coming to a stop.

Please keep posted.

Okotoks Versys - have a look thru your OWNER'S MANUAL. It gives you MUCH GREAT info, including idle-speed recommendations.

My '15 V650 idle is set to 1,500rpm, my '08 V650 is at 1,400.

Also, are you do for a valve adjustment? Is that part of the inspection you mentioned? Fuel and spark are pretty solid on Versys; so...

raise idle RPM, my bike few times die after hard braking and in same downshifting.
My RPM in that time was 1100-1200, I raise that on 1500 and now my baby work extra.
Also you don't have bumpy acceleration in low rpm.
I am talking about Versys 650

Gas for heating, diesel for plowing, electricity for cooking, petrol for driving

It could be fuel related, something as simple as getting bad gas at your last fill up can cause stalling. I know because its happened to me on one of my other bikes two months ago.

The last time I can remember stalling an airplane was flying number 12 in a 12 plane C-130 tactical mission in the vicinity of Elmendorf AFB at Eileson in Alaska to drop the Canadian Airborne Reg't in winter at -40F when the lead aircraft 'broke' his mission briefing that he would do a "racetrack", instead turning directly back to the pertinent beacon which put him onto a collision-course w/ MY Herc.

Rather similar to playing 'crack-the-whip' when you're skating....

We had the troops standing, doing preps for the jump, but we flew out of the stall PDQ!!!

I was the lowest rank pilot (a lieutenant, while everyone else was either a capt or major), and the lead - a major - was NOT happy when I criticized him for doing what he did, CONTRARY to his mission briefing! at our mission de-brief back at CFB Nameo in Edmonton.

BTW - just checked my log-book - that mission was 11.8 hours airborne, for those who care.

11.8 is enough to kill the average man.

I have several buddies who do long haul for the airlines. 2 of them fly the 787. That sucker will stay up for 16 hours!

Longest I remember from 'airline flying' was about 15 hrs, in an AE340 from Vancouver, BC to Hong Kong via overfly-Russia.

We DID have an "annotated crew" w/ a total of four pilots.
