Stalling out

I have an '02 900 that has about 17k on it. In the year that I have had it, never an issue beyond general maintainence.

Today I was riding and twice, while at a light the bike stalled out on me. The tank had gas in it.

I know this is one of those questions with a number of answers....but based on what you know (which is not a lot)....what are some things I could check for (being the non-mechanical dude)?

02 919?

Check the leads to the battery (ground and positive), the ground under the tank on the right side of the backbone. also check to make sure the idle isnt set too low.

Yep...'02 919. I checked the idle and it was where it was supposed to be (1200rpm I do believe). I will check the battery and ground though

Tear apart the housing for the kill switch, too. Could be corroded.

Also check your kickstand switch, those get dirty, too.

More good suggestions..thank you. I rode yesterday and it didnt happen at all so maybe bad gas? I am hoping that is all. Trying to be positive here
