Stalled twice at different RPM?

2001 K1200LT w/ 34k miles.

On my way to work this morning... about 78 degrees and sunny here in SW Wisconsin today. About 1/2 way to work at a 4-way stop the engine quit.... OK no problem, fire the starter and off I go. Then again about 5 miles later while in 3rd gear at about 2500 RPM it quit again... pulled in the clutch and released it and it fired up again.
I just put new gas in it this morning, I always use 93 octane.
I replaced the battery last week, but have already put on about 80 miles since the battery.
This has also happened to me twice in the past, usually at colder temps, around 50 degrees.
Any ideas?

Perhaps the 'new' gas had some bad stuff in it?

Re: Stalled twice at different RPM?

If you still have your canister, check for the "whoosh" when you open your gas cap. If you don't and still have the "whoosh" check for some other blockage in the line.

We have now explored the depth of my knowledge on stalling. Hope it helps.
