There have been a few reports of Rockets stalling or just dying in traffic. This may not have anything to do with those reports but mine stalled Saturday and I have a pretty good idea why. My low fuel light was on, and I was sitting on about 175 miles on the tripmeter. I came into a parking lot kinda fast and had to brake hard and the bike died. I'm pretty sure the small amout of fuel I had in the tank simply sloshed away from the pickup on the electric fuel pump. I simply pulled in the clutch to roll into the parking lot and then let the clutch back out and roll started it. It fired right back up and ran just fine. In fact, I put about another ten miles on it before I hit a gas station. Fuel injection needs that fuel pressure, if it doesn't get it they die rather quickly... just keep her full.
