Bike was in a low speed crash. Little damage was done, no repairs needed for the engine, says the stealership that assesed the damages and fixed the bike.

My gf that is riding the bike found out that the bike at low rpm in low gears or at idle, the rpm drops below 1k, almost bogging, like its running out of gas. Bike starts no problem at all but problem arises as soon as the engine is heating up.

Any ideas?

The problem is not only happening at idle, it's happening also in 1-2-3 at low RPMs / low speed. At constant speed at higher speed, it's not happening.

Quite strange that the mechanic at the Stealership did not experienced the issue ::)

Will get the SO to make a quick vid of the issue tonight, then will try to host it somewhere ...

I should have said, low speed - not much throttle.

The SO drove the bike yesterday and everything was back to normal. However, temperature was much cooler, so it might be caused by heating up, but the fan did kicked in when the problem happened.
