Motor popping thru throttle body

Any thoughts?
Blipping the throttle at a light, pulling away from a stop and crusing in 4th at 2500rpm it has an intermittent hesitation, but rolls-on ok most of the time.
Blipping the throttle and pulling away from a light, the bike has stalled.
Its a '15 Glide with 7100miles on it. I'm gonna change the plugs for the hell of it. Stock other than slip-ons.

I'm assuming you don't have any type of tuner installed since you said "stock". If it's a frequent occurrence I'd get into a dealer to have them check it out

Check that front spark plug wire where it rubs on the gas tank and see if it's worn through.

Not if it is popping through the throttle body.
Don't mess with it just let the dealer fix it under warranty.

Dealer had it for 2 days, turns out the front O2 sensor was wired incorrectly at the computer, from the factory. It didn't rear its ugly head significantly til the weather heated up here. They had to call tech support in Milwaukee to get it figured out. They've never seen anything like this before. Bike runs sooo different now.
