This happened to me a couple weeks ago. I wasn't able to ride for a week, started up my bike, and left the garage. Thirty seconds later I was at the end of the road, slowing to a stop, when it stalled. Like yours, it started right up again. I attributed it to being cold.

if I remember correctly it has to do with engine braking.. no gas is used with engine braking, and then when yo pull the clutch the engine dies because it was no getting any gas to begin with...

easiest way to prevent this from ever happening, is get used to blipping the throttle at clutch pull..

I was doing that at the time of my stall.

could it have anything to do with having a slip on? (little to no back pressure)

Doubtful. Mine as stock as the day it left the showroom, plus 1400 miles.

Unhappy Same here...

Riding the bike back from the dealership yesterday I've had this happen several times. Each time it was because I used engine braking coming in to a stop and, like others here, it started right up again when I hit the starter.

For myself, I'm used to using my brakes late and banging down a couple gears (OK, several gears on the 300) to let the engine do some initial braking for me, pulling in the clutch around 2K, applying front/rear brakes and when I get to a stop the engine has stalled. I don't have this issue on my other bikes, so I'm going to wait a while, get some miles on the bike to break it in and then see if it becomes a regular issue.

Hey boys, just browsing the net and cam accross this topic, I owned a 2011 CBR205r BUT SOLD IT A AS IM BUYING A TRACK BIKE, they had the exact same problem down shifting using engine brakes. Thankfully it only happened a few times and stopped after first service. Might have something to do with valve clearence. For more info google cbr250r stalling.

Garage
Engine Stalls!

Just wanted to share that I have that same issue and I talked to Action Powersports here in Tulsa Okla and had their Mechanic test ride this for some time. He experienced that same issue. This bike (stock) did the very same thing when riding this home during the first day of ownership. I did some break in miles. Then after a few weeks. I then installed a Musarri Slip on and it seem to have more on the acceleration but it actually stalled more on me even when turning the idle up to 1500 Rpms on the idle. So, I then put in the noise silencer and it seemed to give this bike some back pressure like the stock exhaust and it seem to do and run better, but at times it would "Still Stall Out"!. Like coming down a hill before a stop sign.. But much better for the performance and would say better than that stock muffler too...

So, I talked to the Service Manager and he said that he talked to the main authorities at Kawasaki and they are supposed to have this same Bike in the R&D department and are doing some tests.... This has been over 3 weeks now and still no word about this being a Warranty issue or a "Recall Issue'................
I do understand that this Bike is very lean and the Idle Circuit in the Fuel Injection System may have an issue. I just wonder what a Power Commander 5 would do if anything to correct this issue? I do intend in getting that complete setup for my 300. But this should not be stalling out when coming to a stop at all. I have had 2 ZX6Rs, In my past and now also have a new 2012 ZX10R. And never experienced a problem or glitch of any sort with these types of (4 cyl) Bikes at all.

It may be because of this Bike's smaller displacement or simply they just did not test these Bikes out good enough before its release properly... But other than that, this is definitely better than the Ninja 250r except for that glitch in the Fuel Injection which causes this Bike to stall. Maybe everyone should be calling their Dealers and Reps and more or less,, "Demand some action for this problem because the warranty should cover this"!!. Thanks!
