    I would like to have it hooked up to a device and a check for codes/trends promptly after it quits. If at a dealer, a computer download of the “latest and greatest” of the current program- if it hasn’t been done in a while.

In our cases the bike dies whenever the RPMs are low and the clutch lever is pulled in. Typical scenario is coasting to a stop: Bike is in gear, pull in the clutch, close the throttle and it just dies like I hit the kill switch. It seems to die about 1 out of 25 times.If I remember to leave the throttle open just a bit or blip the throttle so that the engine RPM doesn't fall down to idle I can keep this from happening.
    Seems to me that if my problem were the kickstand switch it would/could happen at any time. Instead my issue is somewhat predictable. Thoughts oh wise ones?
    About once a month my 2007 RT would do the same thing. While coming to a stop, I would notice the tach needle dipped to 800 RPM, then go back up to the normal 1,100 RPM. Within a day or two, the engine would suddenly die as you have described, but would always restart immediately. I started using Techron, Sea Form, Star Tron, or any injection cleaner about once a month, and the problem disappeared! Once a year I use some Iso-Heet water remover. You might want to give it a try.
