Default Engine dies at idle

My bike has started to die out when i pull up to a light or just about any time I'm stopping. Say I'm pulling up to a light or stop sign i pull
the clutch in to shift to 1st gear and the engine just dies. Before you
ask I'm not blipping the throttle. So my thoughts are maybe a vacuum leak? It don't do it all the time but at least 1 to 3 times when I'm out riding.

Other than that the bike runs great. any ideas? anyone ever have this problem?

pull right cheese wedge and with motor running spray some WD-40 at the FI rubber boots. If idle revs up or bike dies you have air leak.
You did check battery bolts with a wrench to see if there tight.
You'll have to write Rylan at The Vic Shop and ask how to check fuel pump pressure. It should be 50psi no less

No i haven't checked anything yet. I was out riding all day and when i got home i had some errands to run. I will check all that tomorrow.
As far as the fuel pump go's, it don't make sense to me that it would be bad. I was running 70 to 80 today and it ran great. But you never know, i will check that when i get hold of a pressure gauge. I came across a post a while back about some rubber plugs or caps on the throttle body that go's bad also. I really think it's a vacuum issue.
( I hope ) that would be a easy fix.

Also Thanks for that link on Craigslist. That may come in handy.

fuel pump issue possibly. like vj said. my sons kp had this issue, I guess its common. Lloyd sells a repair kit I believe. its not that the pump isn't working, its that the system doesn't maintain proper psi.

Also check for carbon build up around the throttle body plate. Carbon build up is normal and should be cleaned from time to time. If you see black carbon build up all around the throttle plate, spray a little carb cleaner on it to loosen it up, scrub with a brass wire brush then wipe clean with a shop rag.

Thanks for the reply's. looks like i have some work to do. I cleaned the
throttle body 2 years ago and haven't put that many miles on sense
then. one thing i will do that i haven't done sense i have owned the bike is changing the fuel filter. I did change the inlet filters last year.

Yes, there are 2 vacuum ports with rubber caps on them that dry rot. I did not see the year of your bike but being a v92 good chance these are bad. I would also suggest cleaning the throttle bodies and check the rubber goose neck that connects the tb to the motor. these can dry rot too. I replaced mine last year as it was showing signs of cracking. Wasn't leaking yet but was just a matter of time especially our bikes are 10 years old ..or better.

I think i will pull the tank when i get time. Yesterday i sprayed some carb Cleaner up to the throttle body area and it made no difference
in the idle. Very hard to see anything up in there. Funny thing is it will sit and idle all day, it's when it when it comes down from a higher rpm
when it dies. (sometimes) I will be sure to check them rubber boots and caps when i pull the tank.

Thanks

.. Thats making me think the vacuum leak may be the culprit as vacuum will increase on decel. If you pull the right side cheese wedge you should be able to find the rubber vacuum caps without pulling the tank. Also be sure to spray around the fuel injectors to check for leaks while the bike is running as the o-rings may be faulty.
