Mine did the same thing this past summer when I left it out in the hot sun for a couple of hours. I had to ride almost 2 hours to get home while reving it up at red lights so it wouldn't die. I did some reading on here an apparently it has something to do with the tank heating up. I took off the gas cap and left it off for about half and hour. It has worked fine ever since. Mine is stock pipes and air filter, so if this doesn't do it, it may have something to do with your fuel processor.

How many miles on it and have you ever changed the fuel filter?

The battery has to be charging since it's showing 13.5 volts. It should be less than 13 volts with the ignition off after it's sit for a couple hours.

Going to have to agree with Zoom....was having problems with the bike sometimes dieing when I'd come to a stop. Then, one day it just petered out on me when I'd try to take it over 3K RPM and it would run fine below that. Changed the fuel filter/scrubber and it's run like a champ ever since then.

Sounds like the fuel strainer problem, I used some Sea Foam from Autozone and it cleans the fuel strainer hopefully. I probable still need to change it, but I ride it to work everyday except when the temp is below 32 degrees. Scared of hitting black ice. I may change it in January. For now, Sea Foam it stopping the stalls when I come to a stop.

Jazzman wrote an excellent step-by-step procedure with pics for anyone wanting to change the fuel strainer.

Here is the link.
