In addition to other suggestions, I've had issues with the motor over speed tripping at seemingly random times. I traced it to times when the motor is spinning in neutral and I apply power and ease the clutch in (like coming out of a turn). If I dropped the clutch too hard and there was a sudden drop in motor rpm, the controller thought that was an over speed event and shut down for 2 sec.

Obviously, if you don't have the over speed set up, this won't be a problem. But, if you do, maybe disable it for now and see if it goes away.
