bike just shut off

so, i'm sitting at a stop light. bike is in neutral. and it just shuts off. my feet were on the ground. my hands were on the tank and it just quits. i look at it kind of funny and tilt my head like a confused dog. hit the start button and no problem. it's an '08 with around 1k miles on it. it only happen this one time. it freaked me out at first but i don't think i'm going to be too concerned about it unless it happens again. just wondering if this has ever happened to anybody? should i just forget about it since it only happened this one time and wait to see if it happens again or should i take it in?

There was another member on here that had his bike cut off on him a few times, only difference was he was riding every time it cut off. Let me see if I can find his thread so then you can pm him or read his whole thread.

Just out of curiousity, where do you have the idle set on your bike?

My bike never did anything like what you described but it does ALWAYS stall (sometimes multiple) on the first start of the day. After that first start and all warmed up, I don't have any other issues with stalling.

i'll check the idle but if it was the idle, wouldn't it die more than just this one time?
