    2013 r1200r. Sudden engine off

    In stop and go traffic, my ride suddenly shuddered to a stop as I was applying throttle. Would not immediately restart. After waiting 15 minutes, bike restarted, smelled like gas, and drove without problem. What could be the cause?

    It sounds like you suddenly lost ignition. And the gas smell indicates that the injectors were still firing as the engine stalled. So a thorough check of the ignition system is my advice as the place to start. One possibility is a connection that had high resistance hot but was better once it cooled down.
