I have a 2021 Husqvarna 701 supermoto with about 5100 miles on it. This problem has happened twice while riding, but when I go to down shift the bike will shut off completely. It will start back up with the clutch in and I can go back into gear, but I cant figure out what is causing it. Plugs were pretty white when I pulled them so I am not sure if it is lacking fuel or not. I have read in a bunch places that a lot of people are having false neutral issues. When I go to try to put the bike into neutral from 1st or 2nd the indicator comes on as its in neutral and the bike shuts off. Still the bike will turn on and ride. Any ideas are welcomed.
Mine had a problem with the kickstand switch that kept stalling my bike when riding. Is it happening when you downshift in certain gears or with the auto blip or are you using clutch to downshift? The false neutral problem has been an issue since the birth of the 701 and later 690’s. You can buy the shift kit from Rottweiler and it makes a huge difference.
