My '07 with 42000 miles started stalling with dangerous frequency. Although there are several possible causes, dirty throttle bodies from ethenol contaning gas is a cause. In my experience, running Techtron through the fuel does not fix it. I cleaned my throttle bodies myself with carb cleaner a tooth brush and a rag be sure to clean both sides of the butterfly valves also. My K1200 GT has run perfectly now for 3000 miles.
You can do this yourself by removing the fairing,gas tank and air box. Take your time, limit distractions, and label fastners, hoses and plugs. By doing this at home you will eliminate a trip to the dealer ( 200 miles for me ) and likely solve the problem. If not, you may have another problem such as a bad coil that will require the dealers attention. This issue is fixable.
