After another unreal ride here in the UP of Michigan, on March 18th...with 80 degree air temps, I was reminded of an issue I was having last year and forgot about over the winter. I have an '09 Raider with VH 2-1 pipes and a PCV, nothing else(engine wise). This is an intermitent problem, but seems to happen more the warmer it is.
Either when cruising for an extended period of time at higher speeds down the highway and then having to stop quicker coming off the ramp, so I pull in the clutch to brake and downshift, and the bike stalls out. Or if I get on it and run it up through the gears fast once or twice, then just pull in the clutch after winding out a gear, she dies off and stalls, instead of dropping down to an idle. Always starts right back up and acts like nothing happened. I have come up to a stop sign after winding her out a bit, and had to actually keep it running with a touch of throttle or it would stall. Definatly seems to happen more after "beating" on her a bit...gently of course!
Its been doing this for over a year, and as I said, it dosn't do it all the time. I added the PCV last summer, thinking it may take that away...but it didn't. I just have the map from Dynotech for my bike/pipe combo, I belive this is the best?? I have NO good dealer anywhere near me to try to diagnose this...and I figured the welth of info on here, this was my best chance!
