BMW mod to help prevent stalling

I read somewhere a few weeks ago that BMW are doing a modification (maybe engine mapping or something similar) which helps prevent the stalling of the bike!
Sadly as usual I canít find where I read this.

Does anyone know of this mod and if it has had any benefit ?

Iím having my bike serviced by BMW soon and I want to make sure EVERYTHING is taken care of.
Thanks.

I just fitted smaller sprocket in the front and bigger at the rear, so no longer stalling issues which is caused by high gearing

as you love riding, you need to love you bike

Sorry. Stalling is a symptom of an inexperienced rider. Learn the clutch.

It's funny watching experienced riders stall the 310 when they come from a bigger bike

I don't stall it as much anymore as before. Never stalled any of my other 10+ bikes over 40 years, like, ever.

Inexperienced or experienced the bike has very little flywheel inertia and will therefore, relatively speaking, stall easily off the line. Even more so with tight technical off-roading.

As stated shortening up the gearing helps and for street riding you’ll eventually adapt don’t worry about anyone thinking they’re better than you because of it all.

I stalled it just recently, only because I was in second taking off at the lights, lurched forward, stalled, immediately pulled the clutch and restarted while still rolling forward, I doubt that the cars behind me even realized what happened. I also stalled when I got a loaner G310R while mine was in service, maybe because the engine was cold, it wasn't ridden in as much as mine, or because the clutch was set differently.
