have an 04 919 with about 4500 miles i bought with 2200 on it 6 months ago. was on the throttle pretty hard wound up to about 8k rpm 2nd gear let off just go coast to stop using the engine to brake basically. while slowing the darned thing acted like you turned off and back on about 4 times. never done this before or since then either. any suggestions?
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.
