rode my bike about 25 miles no problem. parked for an hour and rode for another 10 miles then it starts to run funny. if i rev to past 12k it would get to 12 then drop down to about 9k then back up, all while holding the throttle open. it has a fresh tank of gas. no FI light. eventually on my way home it lost power on me twice. any known problems or issues i should check 1st?

check the side stand switch.
if this part has a problem it causes the bike to shut down and lose power at high rpms, regardless of throttle inputs.

Make a jumper for the plug and see if that takes care of the problem.
It worked for me and I spent a long time chasing it down (nothing in the service manual about this).
