Hesitation, surging, heat, then PERFECT...
This one is weird. It's been an ongoing occurrence over the last few months so I know it's something intermittent causing my problem, or perhaps a faulty connection/sensor/device.
Starts up, fires right up, runs brilliantly... get on the freeway, tons of power, cruising along... suddenly i feel a noticeable power loss and the bike starts heating up. 177 quicklly becomes low 200's. If I slow down or get behind a tractor trailer, that low 200's becomes 220. Then the fan cycles start and it bounces between 210 and 222. Then, just as I get pissed off about it, I will hit a bump or something in the road... my power comes back, and the bike quickly recovers and cools down to 180-182. Five minutes later... maybe I hit a bump again, and bam... runs crappy, heats up again, etc. It never stalls, and I have no FI lights. No modifications have been made leading up to the start of these issues... bike's been the same for a year.
Loose connection? Bad coil? Fuel pressure regulator? Fuel pump? All sorts of ideas have popped into my head but I thought I would ping the group and see if someone had a similar occurrence.
Thanks, as always!
