How much gas in the tank? Mine sometimes starts acting funny if I'm a little low on gas, even if there is at least half a gallon left.

My '02 has done something like this twice a couple of weeks apart. On the gas out of a right hander, back off for a left hander and it felt like it either jumped a tooth on the sprocket or the ignition cut/relit as fast as you can snap your fingers. Both times I was up around 8K and backed off.
I checked wiring, chain and sprockets, etc. Never found anything. That was about 2 months ago and it has never happened since. I did find later that the clutch wiring at the control pod was loose; one came off and I had the "idle up" problem when in gear. Don't know if this could have anything to do with it or not.

I don't know how much gas I had, but I do know the fuel light wasn't flickering or on or else I would have thought that the problem.
