The booster plug fixed it for me and my 2016 AT. Stalling happened at very low miles and possibilities for serious consequences demanded quick fix. The plug tells the bike that it is colder out than it really is causing it to richen the mixture slightly. No problems since. The designer said that Honda was tuning the system too lean for emissions purposes. It has run great ever since and now has over 25,000 miles on it. Gas mileage seems unchanged. Only drawback was the installation which requires tank removal. If you haven't tried that....give it a go. It gets easier (and quicker) each time you do it.

P.S.: Love the bike

No need of booster plug (last useless ****) to solve the issue.

I have a VFR1200X, NC700X and the Africa Twin, all DCT.


The only stall I've had on those bikes in a combined 12,000 miles is one on the Africa Twin at about 1400 miles if I remember correctly.


I ride all of them in the most aggressive sport mode that they allow. I can't remember if I was riding in D or not when I had the stall.

My 2018 ATAS DCT did the whole stalling thing too when I was on a trip out to Colorado in September, started when I was riding miles off road up a trail in the mountains after I had ridden all the way across 6 states from the East Coast. Ran like a champ before this happened. 3500 miles on it.
Bike bucked like crazy for a bit then stalled out, did it a few times. Start, run 5 min then stall etc. 10 times or more.. had 1/3 tank of gas or so, no cellphone coverage, I thought I was sleeping out under the stars... I sat for an hr then the bike started and stayed running, I made it off the trail, gassed up with a full tank and headed back to town.
Went to the dealer first thing in the morning and he couldnt reproduce the issue and there was no codes stored in the computer. I left the dealer and within 10 minutes it was happening again, bucking like crazy and stalling, so back to the shop and told the dealer. He then took it out and it happened to him too.
He talked to the Honda Service rep who told him there was an issue reported by another dealer where the fuel filter was plugged with a wax coating from when the tank was made that might not have been completely cleaned when the bike was assembled. Tanks were all built and stored before the bikes were assembled I guess ?
My guy took the tank off and sure enough the fuel filter was plugged with a white waxy substance.
Dealer cleaned the filter and washed out the tank. Reassembled and all was good, no further issues since. Honda also very nicely paid for a new Fuel pump install when I got home, in case the pump was damaged when stalling out.
All good since, Honda took care of it I'm happy to say.
My bike is a really low serial number bike, so an early build for Honda.
Love the bike, the Adventure half way up a mountain adds to the fun...

Excellent post Martman, thank you. Ive not had this happen to me, but its reassuring to know at least one cause, that is 'mechanical' rather than 'software' and so, is easily resolved.

Mine has started doing this, riding through town and the bike would loose power and stall. Restarted ok but did it again. Seems to happen when the weather is warm. Eventually got on a motorway and it lost power and stalled in the outside lane, bit of a life flashed before my eyes moment, trying the get the bike to safety on the hard shoulder. Then called recovery as I didn't want to die! Speaking to Honda dealer today. Bike is a June 2018 dct with 16k on it. I have noticed that I cant go below 34 miles left in the tank as the bike stalls, presumably because the petrol in the tank has moved when braking....
