Hello I own a 2007 1200GS. I bought it two years ago, it did 228,000 KM till now. Since I bought it (and probably it was before...) I have a problem that no matter what I (and few specialists) did, it still happens: the engine cuts out. This often happens when I accelerate and close the throttle to shift to higher gear. The problem also occurs when closing the throttle while riding down a hill. It always occurs at the beginning of a ride, even if I rode before, (so the engine is still hot) usually in the first mile or two. If I keep the rpm low - less than 3,000 rpm, even if I go into high gear, the fault appears less. If it happens (it can happen few times in a roll) and I restart the engine, I can then ride hundreds of miles with no problem. It happens randomly- there can be few days with no cuts off, or few times in a short ride. Two days ago I made 200 miles, it happened once, after a short break at the gas station. Yesterday it happened 3 times over a short two miles ride...
Parts that were already replaced: spark plugs, the Throttle Position Sensor, primary and secondary coils, cam shaft sensor, injectors, battery. The valves were also adjusted. I don't have any idea what else to look for... any suggestions? Thanks.

I've had the same problem once, long time ago. I bought used bike (Suzuki) and it was doing the same thing. Many people tried and no joy in solving the problem. Eventually, one mechanic remembered to check clutch lever switch and voila, previous owner bypassed the switch. Solving that the bike has never had the problem again.
I don't know if your bike has little switch bellow clutch lever. If it does, it's worth checking it.

I had random engine cutoff with my 2009 R1200gs until I by passed the kick stand switch. It was going bad and the smallest touch with my heel made the motor drop for a few seconds.

Try bypassing it for a while, if it fixes the issue, just replace it.

Thanks, I thought it might be that, so it was disconnected months ago- it didn't solve the problem...
