    My 1200x suddenly lost power and engine light came on. Pulled up and engine was at idle with no response from throttle. Turned off, waited several seconds and restarted. Back to normal. Engine light was still on but went off at next stop/start. Completed the trip of a further 500km with no problem. Any comments appreciated.

    I had something similar happen to me this week on a cross country trip. Lost power to wheel and had to pull over on the highway. I can’t remember if the engine died as well or just wasn’t sending power. The check engine light came on and the oil light came on second. Checked oil level, kick stand, opened gas cap, and everything else I could think of. Started up twice and had power but engine light stayed on for the next 45 miles. After refueling and starting twice more engine light turned off and I haven’t had any issues since. Going to try to get codes pulled soon to see what it was.

    Thanks for your reply Sloth and at least I’m not the only one to have it happen! I haven’t had any codes read but will at next service. I’ve asked around a bit at service departments and the general feeling is that it was a “one off glitch”. It hasn’t happened again. Only worry I have is that it could happen when I’m halfway past a road train😫

    No worries. I scoured the internet to find something similar to what happened to me with no luck. Same worry, I was going to be stuck 1,000 miles from home.

    Most of me wants to believe it was due to the horrible roads in Ohio. It was late at night and I’m pretty sure I hit every pot-hole there was.

    Now that’s interesting about the rough roads because my drop out happened on a particularly rough section. It was a sealed road but at 100kph it was uncomfortable with bouncing and jolting. You were certainly a long way from home so I bet you were glad when it returned to normal!!

    Hi have had the same issue just now. Bike went into limp mode, idle speed only and engine light on. Restarted bike and bike would run but light stayed on until a couple of restarts then light went away. Any ideas appreciated.

    I haven’t had the issue happen again since the one time. I really think it was a sensor hiccup (maybe kickstand or something that could kill the engine) due to rough roads. Ive even run it down a bunch of dirt roads and off road trails since and no other issues.

    Hi Sloth that makes four times hmmm really shouldn’t happen at all and I occasionally think about it half way past a long vehicle - could be dangerous. The kick stand could move on a bumpy road but that would completely cut the motor. Mine just went to idle with no response from the throttle and the engine light on.
    Cheers,
    Bill
