Stalls 2 Much

Newbie to BMW, but was hoping to get some advice from more experienced owners.

The R1100R I just picked up runs great the majority of the time. I am a little concerned about the multiple backfire sounds that come from the Remus exhaust - and I was given the OEM exhaust and CPU chip when I purchased the bike and have considered trying them out to see if they lean out the mixture a bit. But my question is more about the stalling that I experience while on a ride. Even after the bike is fully warmed up, when I go to downshift as I am coming to a stop, the bike dies. I have also noticed that after a good rev of the engine, the RPMs drop below idle and then bounce back up.

Aftermarket on the bike are PIAA driving lights that stay on all the time and I have noticed that this stall only happens when the aftermarket heated grips are turned on. (The grips were installed post-original owner purchase by a BMW dealership). The bike doesn't have ABS.

I am wondering if the driving lights and heated grips are robbing so much power that the engine stalls. I rode for about 2 hours the other day and experienced this stall event twice while on the ride. Although, I have started to adjust my riding style to keep some throttle on a little while coming to a stop or slowing down considerably while the heated grips are on.

This doesn't seem like the safest of events to be occurring and I would like to resolve it since I prefer to have all of the bikes systems functioning in case an evasive maneuver is required.

Thanks for any help or suggestions that you might provide.

i had this problem with my F800ST. I would be riding, and then i pull the clutch, let off the gas, and the revs drop to about 800 and the bike either dies, or chokes and keeps going. People on an f800 forum said it was something to do with new software that needed to be installed. After my 12000 mile service earlier this week, i have not had this happen, or be even close to happening. Im relating it to either the computer software, or my plugs and air filter being dirty.
