2015 XCx Stalling on braking

This has happened at least once on the last three rides on my Tiger. As I slow down for a stoplight and pull in the clutch to down shift or come to a complete stop the engine dies and the red light with the oil can comes on. It has happened in different gears and on slow and fast braking (ex. unexpected yellow light). Each time it has restarted with out issue. I have never had any idle issues, yet seems like on occasion the bike can't maintain idle when the clutch is pulled in and simply dies. It all happens within a second of pulling in clutch. It will restart effortlessly and idle normally after restarting.

I created a separate thread because the 2015 tigers are not supposed to have the stepper motor that caused idle and stalling issues on previous tiger 800s.

I will probably have it checked out by the dealer as soon as I can but that looks like more than a week away. So far it hasn't put me in a life threatening position but it is easy for me to imagine pulling in the clutch getting the red oil can light and something bad happening before I can restart it and move.

Anyone else on '15 experiencing something similar? Anything I should check before trying to ride an hour and half to the dealer?

Check connections. All of the safety (clutch , sidestand , battery cables , etc..) switches before the hour and a half schlep back to your dealer. Can't hurt.

I am right at 2000 miles. Of course, after posting the original message it hasn't done it since :) (two separate rides). I was paying extra attention and trying to replicate it, which meant the bike performed wonderfully.

I will double check all the connections and monitor it. Not planning a dealer visit at this point.

Update. It acted up again, but I fixed it. No more stalling. Adjusted the clutch cable so it was a little bit tighter and got new gas. All stalling when braking is gone. I think I possibly had a tank of bad gas too. The Clutch cable had stretched a little bit, but I thought it was still in acceptable range, but have had no issues since the adjustment. Have put 600 miles on it since the clutch adjustment. Most of it on a long weekend trip.

Just posting the simple fix since others searching for stalling might wonder.

i was having the same issue from zero to 1300 km with my bike. now i am at 4000 kms. it was stalling sometimes when i pull the clutch to downshift.
i went to dealer, they didnt find anything about it and triumph didnt solve my problem. i decided to give some throttle after every pulling the clutch, now i am not having stalling for 3 months. but one same stalling issue occured last month and i didnt take over on it. i hope any body wont injure self or somebody.
triumph still dont see
- stalling problem
- rear clunking problem on rear suspension links or on wp susp.
- front clunking problem on front wp links or on wp susp.

they say we didnt have any feedback about these. forums have a lot of these issues.

I have had this happen about three times. Last time was the past weekend, extremely steep gravel, locking up front and rears....and bike stalls. I'm pretty darn sure I've got the clutch fully engaged.

Having had a dirt bike in my earlier years, I didn't have this problem. I will see if it happens again on my next dirt ride.
