Bike is shutting off on me....

Ok this happened twice today.. When im on the throttle the bike is fine, but when i go to slow down to stop my bikes starts to idle low and shuts off on me. I have had the bike for almost a year now and this is the first time it has done this. I changed the spark plugs on it and it still does the same thing. The bike will start right back up if it shuts off but not sure why its shutting off..... Any ideas??

1) Check all electrical connections, especially the grounds.

2) Make sure you didn't pinch the harness between the tank and the frame when you changed your plugs.

9 out of 10 its a loose connector or worn wire somewhere in the loom.
