wwhen it stalls, it will start again right away?, it could be lots of things, in case it was fuel related i would try a high dose of seafoam.

At times it does start right up again most of the time you have to let it sit for a few minutes

might also be a plugged gas cap or tank vent.it would be easy to check, when it dies loosen the gas cap and crank it over.

I agree with everyone above. When it happens, open the gas cap. If it still won't start, look at the pulse generators. They fail when they are hot. When they cool they work fine.

I agree that the pulse generators could be the cause.Mine would stall for no reason when I was riding and sometimes I could even get it started before I coasted to a stop.It was very intermittent sometimes every few miles or hundreds other times..
I decided to replace the pulse generators just to eliminate them and found that the problem was comming from a broken wire right at the top generator it was so close that I wasn't able to repair it properly. Seems that every once in a while the wire would loose contact and cause a failure.Have had no more problems since they were replaced Dave

On the 86 Wings, the "PG's" are located behind the cam-belt cover on the front of the engine. The "parts" are harder to find than they are to replace. You may want to get a manual and do some further trouble-shooting. The Pulse Coils/generators are a known weak spot for the 1200 series. But with a 23 year old bike electrical connections,coils and plug wires could also be suspect. You might even try carrying a spare plug with you, and the next time it stalls you could swap it out to verify spark, or the lack there of. Just one more step before digging into the wallet...





And welcome to the forum, the folks here are friendly and all about helping...:gunhead:
