When mine cut out, it had not been washed in three weeks, just dusted off and windscreen cleaned.
Yesterday I did a full wet wash then went on a couple rides....no issues.
Sounds like we are chasing our tails here.

I suggest that you do a search on throttle position sensor and/or TPS. Here is one result:

My 2012 Launch Edition Explorer has had the tendency to do this on rare occasions, right from day 1 of ownership.

When it happens, I reckon it's down to me blipping the throttle while slowing at stop signs & traffic lights. I've never seen it as a problem and never bothered trying to understand or fix the issue.

Just trying to help Fred.

The washing doesn't have to be recent. The build up of moisture in the connectors can occur over a long period of time during the course of several washes. Then when there is enough moisture in the connector it causes problems. In one case it was causing erratic running on steady low throttle openings. It was intermittent. It was eventually discovered that it wasalso temperature related when engine heat used to diffuse the moisture, but allow it to return when the motor was cold. This proved a nightmare to find and was only discovered after two mechanics swapped ideas on the issue and one happened to mention that UK folks did a lot of washing of their bikes with resultant occasional issues with the connectors.

Believe me I get that. I hope I didn't come across ungrateful. Just trying to eliminate possibles.
I live in a desert so the only moisture the bike has seen has been three washings. Our humidity levels are in the single digits.
I really appreciate all the help you guys have given me and absolutly won't bite the hand that feeds me.
I apologize for the misunderstanding.

Suddenly an "old" memory pops up in my mind: after a service on my first Tex ('12), the bike would cut out way too often (2 or 3 times a day, when coming to a stop and sometimes even when stationary in trafic jams).
Told the dealer who replied the usual "It's all in your head, I don't want to work for free".
Tried the 12mn adaption routine and... problem solved !

Not 100% sure about that old memory, but it doesn't cost much to try it...

So, to summarize, a split hose on the MAP sensor caused the stalling problems?

I'm no expert but a split hose which led to the disconnect can't be good.
His bike is a '17 model which is pretty new for hoses to fail.
To be honest, I'm not convinced this is my problem until I remove the tank to see.

Since my stalling issues were solved by the 12mn idle routine, I'll blame it on the electronics (which basically are computers programmed by... well... engineers, so you know where I'm going ;-).
