Over the past few months the engine on my R1100RS (41,000 miles) has cut out several times. The engine stops running suddenly and immediately?no sputtering or stumbling. The first time it happened was last spring. After it died, the engine would turn over, but not start. After waiting a few minutes it started and nothing happened again until a few weeks ago. It has cut out a few more times, most recently yesterday. Like last spring?s event, the engine stops abruptly, but recently it has fired up within a 30-60 seconds of cutting out.
I have also noticed the engine feels like it is surging or missing a bit at highway speeds in fourth and fifth gear.
Has anyone experienced anything like this or have any thoughts on what the problem may be? I have run fuel treatment, but the problem persists. Could it be the beginning of Hall Effect problem or is that an immediate and complete failure?
P.S. I have checked and the intake is clear of S bike parts.
