She just quit

Something weird happened today within 10 min of starting my commute home. As I rolled up to a stop light I pulled the clutch and shifted to neutral. I looked down to see the engine had died. I quickly fired her back up then a couple of minutes later it died again but I had the clutch pulled in. I just bought this bike a couple of weeks ago a '97 R1100 RT with 20k on the odometer. What the heck could have happened?

Re: She just quit

Oxygen sensor going bad? Could be caused by any number of things. What happens when you're going down the road and pull in the clutch to coast for a few hundred yards?

Re: She just quit

I didn't try coasting too far with the clutch in, maybe 50 yards or so with no issues.
