TLR stalls

Question for all of you wise and knowledgeable motorcycle gurus:

Any ideas on what would cause a 1999 TLR, 1280 miles, yosh exhaust, to stall immediately if rpm's are below 1000-1500. It runs like a champ if r's kept up, but dies right now if they drop to idle. It will not sit and idle, just shuts off. It has been sitting for about a year. There is stabilizer in the tank and it has been topped off with 92 octane fuel.

Thanks much!

Completly drain fuel system, put fresh gas in it, install new spark plugs and air filter. You should be good to go.

I had a '98 TLS with the Yoshi RS3 cans. It did the same thing, just not every time. Turns out, it had to be remapped. TLs are notorious for having funky maps, and changing anything at all causes them to have fits. A remap is usually one hour of labor at a Suzuki shop, and was worth every penny in my case. Even if the map is not the culprit, you will still benefit from an updated map.

It's an 8 yr old bike with no miles....stabilizers are only good for about 3-6 mos. I would dump the fuel, change the fuel filter, do an oil change, put in a fresh battery (don't be cheap, it's prolly shot) and then run a couple tanks of Chevron through it before I did anything else. If it's still stumbling after that, go have it remapped.

prolly got a injector half plugged w/ old gas. might have to pop off the throttle bodies and clean them good.

power commander is a must for those bikes too. takes out that hesitation and popping through the air box.

I got an idea Dragon... Trade marko your Tiller straight up for his GSXR 750... From what I gather, it runs REAL well...

You need to pull codes with a diagnostic tool but it sounds a bit like a bad TPS

I would clean the fuel system COMPLETELY even if it wasn't having problems!!

Thanks guys! I know it's been a minute since I asked, but I did figure it out. The choke was gummed up and wouldn't adjust. Fun part-->got it runnin and the guy sold it out from under me. gotta love it! So I ended up finding an '03 SV1k with 2800 miles on it and am flogging that for now. Thanks again!
