    before you say check the forum I went through 53 pages and I couldn’t find a thread similar. Over the summer I had installed, kuryakyn crusher maverick air filters, vel pro short exhaust and iridium plugs. Also recently had put on a borrowed fi2000 tuner . Recently I’ve experianced losses of power . I’ve noticed that in different gears and speeds it looses revs momentarily then goes back to normal. On my latest ride it happened most of the ride for about 90 minutes. My knowledge is minimal and I’m thinking possibly a fuel blockage maybe , while I’m riding I can feel it loose power for a sec then the power goes back to normal , it seems to fade in and out. The fi light has come in lately and the error code says nil errors. Your advice is greatly appreciated .

    From what I have seen the problem wasnt there until ya plugged the cobra in.. Yes... it wasnt running perfectly before ya plugged it in due to your mods but it seems like it is running a shitload worse since ya plugged her in.. My thoughts only.....:dontknow:

    I think it needs a dyno mate, that will sort it out.

    Hop years ago when I had my 2008 109 I had an issue which worked just like a tilt sensor, Hold it upright and it would run fine, Lay it over or place it on the side stand it would cut out and toss a FI light. Turned out to be a crook wire on the air temp sensor which is up near the neck of the tank. Have to pull the tank back to get at it.
