I took my 01 KDX220 out for the first time a couple weekends ago. Being the novice I am I'm going to ask a dumb question. Should the bike stall that easy when nailing the brakes? I was trail riding and came upon some tough corners a couple times and I layed on the front&rear brake(s), but mostly the front. I didn't come to a complete stop, but close, and the bike quit on me. This happened twice. It was like once I nailed the brakes the engine went down to nothing and I stalled. Couple kicks and on my way, but was I possibly in a gear or two too high? My old XR would come close to killing but when I let out the clutch it would start up again. This KDX seems different. Could be that I'm learning all over again, which is probably the case.
