Stall on down shift

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone else has similar experiences with their bike.
I am getting a bit of sputtering / backfiring on engine braking (even light engine braking in the 3000 rpm range). Today I was coming up to a stop light and I down shifted from 4th into third and the bike stalled out! I will explain the procedure so its more clear. Coming to light around 65 km/h in 4th, let of gas, pull in clutch, slight bump on the throttle while downshifting to third to get the rpms up... Stall! I had not even released the clutch. Started it up before coming to a stop and has not happened again.
The bike also has a awkward idle when up to temp, tends to lope a bit. I am wondering if the ecu is acting up?

Anyone else?

Yeeeehaaaaaw!

Maybe position of side stand switch is not right and it's playing up as side stands vibrates a bit????

+1 and try loose terminal connections before looking too deeply into ecu issues.

On other bikes I've had a few strange symptoms when the battery leads weren't done up fully. Tightnening them up was cheaper than an ECU.

I also noticed that the bike is a 2014 V-Beak, I would be back down the supplying dealer and get them to do it, and if a terminal was loose I'd want to know why was the dealer prep was charged (pdi) if not carried out?

Ya, nary a backfire out of mine. All is silk smooth right now. Of course that's with 500kms.

That sounds eerily like the old VStrom, and it needed a PC3 or PC5 to fix it.

SERIOUSLY doubt that is the issue with this model.....all new injectors, ECM, extra plug, new internals. No bike is perfect but this is the first I have heard of this from the new Vee2, sounds like a trip back to the dealer is in order.

Are you using the correct fuel grade that the new engine requires?

Iíve already noticed the awkward, loping idle and Iím only at 162kms!!(Would LOVE to be able to manually adjust that idle!) I doubt itís an ECU issue, more like just one of those odd Strom peculiarities. My old í03 also had a tendency to stall on the throttle blip. This problem disappeared after the first 4 or 5 thousand kms and never occurred again. I'm hoping for a repeat performance with my new V2!
