When Robert, Anita and I were heading back, my bike started cutting out for no known reason. Just a split second and very erratically. Then it was good for the next 150 mi. home. Tonight it did it again. But longer and more often. Checked battery cable connections, plug wires, etc. Nothing obvious. It starts, revs and idles good. 08 efi. Pointers anyone?

Right hand kill switch (on/off). We had to replace that on our 07.

Play with the ignition switch. After a while the one on my old Deuce corroded the metal contacts and at first it exhibited the same behavior as your bike. When it finally went south the contacts were bits and pieces of rusted slim metal parts.

Ride safe

Did you ever get this figured out, Bro????

Since it's not consistent I'm with Ordy on the contacts... Makes sense...

^^^This. Also you might want to check the lean/angle sensor. This is the sensor that is supposed to kill the engine if you tip over. There have been problems in the past with them going bad and the symptoms are much like yours. I have also heard that a loose battery connection will do this. It get worse as the connection loosens and carbons up from sparking.

Just actually started into it today. Eliminating the basics. Cleaning the air filter and changing plugs. No change. It does it just sitting now. Rev to 2500-3K and it's missing and cutting out. Not enough time today so tomorrow I'll inspect the ignition switch and locate the tilt/lean. I think thats under the seat. I'll look it up in the Clymers.

Never did update on the problem. All the codes pointed to the TCM, throttle control module. Throttle by wire in the handlebar. So bought one and after alot of dick fuckin around, got it replaced and it was the problem.

$105 for the TCM. And about 10 hours of my time. Fishing wiring thru apes is a bitch. Thought I needed to remove all the wiring so I needed a Deutch connector tool. Ordered that on line for $20. But ended up not going that route. Finally found a fish line that would get thru with a little McGyvering. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerbang1.gif)

i feel your pain bruddah

Fished wires for cruise control through a set of 12" apes. You at least don't have an inner fairing to contend with. Had to remove it in order to get my fishing line, a 12 gauge piece of solid copper wire, to wend it's way to the top of the bars. Going from top to bottom was not even in my realm of grand ideas. Took me a few hours but i got 'er done! My bike doesn't have throttle by wire that needs to go in the bars so had one less piece of wire to obstruct my way but it still sucked big, big donkey cock...

Glad you got her fixed.

Ride safe
Ordy
