I had another issue that side tracked me from asking about the stalling. Three days days before my service I rode about 20 miles, shut down for about 5 minutes and then tried (I repeat, tried to start my bike). I pushed the start button and the motor would not turn over, it tried. Each push of the starter got me one "thuu". After about three tries I sat there for about 15 minutes and tried again and it started. I thought my battery had gone bad and put it on the battery tender each day when I got home from work. I did not put it on the night before the service. The mechanic said my battery is putting out the same voltage(?) as a brand new battery so he thought this might have been an issue of a dirty post. I hope they cleaned it as part of the service. I have noticed that intermittently when I stop to get gas the bike turns over kind of slow on restart.
I am kind of put off about asking the service department about the stalling issue. Whenever I describe stuff like this to them they look at me like I am crazy (like the flat spot that has never been fixed). I thought my service, starting issue, and bringing up the the squealing clutch (from day one) was pushing it.
