Engine cut out

Ok, I take back what I posted a few months ago the problem is actually the ignition itself dealer will replace it along with the fuel tank lock and the one for storage.

I dropped by and described the issue to a tech. He seemed confident he could resolve the issue. Brought the bike in yesterday, and he starts heehawing that I'm blipping the throttle 3-500 rpms, and I'm trying to explain to him that it's just one of the manifestations of whatever the root cause is. Anyway, he said he'd have a look and contact Yamaha, but if they couldn't resolve it, then I'm on the hook for $90 diagnostic fee.

Oh yeah, we discovered a small amount of coolant has blown out the top of the radiator cap.

If they can't fix it, here's my planned diy list: plugs, wires, injectors, thermostat, water temp sensor, tps, maf, idle air adjustment, throttle body sync. I don't really want to invest more $$$/time into pcv + dyno shop tuning just to get the bike to not die at a stop light.

I wish I knew if this problem started before or after the recall work was done.

oh hai, yo
