I would check the kickstand kill switch. Maybe one of your kickstand springs is broke and when you hit a bump the side stand drops slightly allowing the kill switch down there to shut the motor off. I suspect something like this because it seems to just re-start every time.

I haven't looked, is there any adjustment in that little switch?

I have had my DL1k04 do that but only at idle and when I was stopped. If memory serves me right they happened when it was hot outside. Like over 90F. I have not had it happen when moving, and yes I agree, that would not be a good thing!

My 04 dl650 has developed something similar after 9,600 miles. If I don't let it warm up enough, it will die when I shift from first to second. I have to let it run for 2 to 3 minutes now from a cold start. This is new and consistant. I have no idea why this has developed.
