I have no idea what causes the stallng problem, but my bike had it in spades for a short period. I'd swtiched from 95 octane fuel to 91, and after a while it began stalling. Several trips to the dealers did nothing to help it - sometimes all was sweet, other times it would stall. Then one day it had a really bad dose of the problem, and I switched back to 95 octane fuel... the problem went away. In the interests of experimentation, after a few thousand kilometers I went back to the (recommended) 91 octane fuel... which several months and >10,000 km later I'm still using with no sign of the problem recurring. As the smart folks say, go figger. If the dealers did anything to fix it like lubing the throttle bodies, they have not said so.
Speaking as a dealer in the Midwest, we have sold a few dozen 800's, as well as the other major dealer here, and there have been no issues, or service bulletins, concerning stalling. I also personally ride one, as a commuter, 22 miles each way, no issues. I have the Arrow tune on it. We also rent these, at 19,000 miles, 6 trips to California, no issues.
