    2016 K1600gtl engine stalled after winter hibernation
    2016 K1600GTL 4,400 miles. Winterized for about 6 months. Took out for warm up ride to change oil. Took about a minute to start and idled kind of erratic. Engine stalled about 4 miles out of town. Attempted start, engine turns over, engine check icon came on, no codes.
    Suggestions please,
    Peace.

    You used fuel stabilizer I presume? Maybe condensation in fuel? Try can of heet, fuel system dryer.

    Sorry hit return to quickly, pulling codes will provide more clues.

    Question Procedures performed

    Siphoned about 5 gallons of gas from tank and added marine grade Sta-Bil and no-ethanol gas. Bike idled pretty smoothly for about 15 minutes then started hiccuping til it stopped and does not start.
    Ran all possible tests with my GS-911, all system working, no fault codes found.
    Now what?
    Peace.

    I'll take it off your hands for $500......... kidding. Fuel, Air, Spark start there, surprised one of the "K" bike guru's hasn't weighed in yet.

    Still sounds fuel related to me, if the fuel is good, possibility that a critter has nested in the intake or one of the fuel tank vents?

    Chevron Techron

    Or Seafoam and take it out for a good long run. When the tank gets almost to empty, fill it with fresh gas
