High-Speed Stalling Issue
I am looking for good advise from the K1300s experts. I was riding my 2010 K1300s and came upon a new issue. High speed stalling was never an issue with the bike and low speed stalling was so infrequent that I gave up considering that an issue.
This week I rode the bike from Southern California to Billing MT and the bike started exhibiting a new response, which was when I would try to increase my speed the bike would stall. Pulling in the clutch and giving the bike more throttle would sometimes bring the bike back to life. Other times I would pull in the clutch hit the start button and the bike would fire back up. If this occurred once I would have written this off. But over the course of the ride this event occurred more than 20 times. I thought this could be bad gas but in the course of 1000 miles I filled put a few times. All of this was occurring while I was riding a range between 70 and 85 mph.
I did find that when the bike was sitting at the filling station, if I opened the throttle wide open, turned on the ignition for 10 seconds, and turned off the ignition, the bike would exhibit the issue less frequently.
Does anyone have any ideas on what this could be. I have had all the BMW updates and I am up to date on service.
