I cannot remember when the speed sensor was removed from the final drive. If your '02 has this, the culprit is almost guaranteed to be the wire from it being partially cut where it is zip tied to the front end of the rubber brake line, at near the pivot point of the swing arm. This is very common, and will cause the cruise to kick out on bumps when the wire is flexed. I was the first to have this problem and posted about splicing the wire back, and over the years since many, many more have done so.
Watch the speedometer when riding over bumps and see if the needle flickers. If so, the problem is the wire.
If you do not have the speed sensor on the '02, then it is another problem.
