2010 K1300GT Trouble Starting It

Out of nowhere sometimes before the ride or during riding when i slow down for a stop it wants to stall unless i rev the engine 2K RPM and above, wtf.
*Note: the battery icon displays on the dashboard when im trying to turn on the bike, it never did this before.

And when it does stall i cant turn it back on unless i turn it on while reving to 1.5K RPM and above.

I checked the voltages before the ride: ~12.7
At stall: ~12.5

I dont think it's the battery, it's charged to like 95% and above and ran a few tests.

What can the issue be? sensor? electrical system? starter?

Re: 2010 K1300GT Trouble Starting It

Have you had the software upgrade that deals with the stalling issue? There is also a wiring harness upgrade for the battery to the starter.

Update: the issue was dirty battery connectors, after cleaning them and sanding them bike worked fine.
