Default momentary loss of power

I assume that this would actually apply to probably anything with the 106 but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem which for my is mostly random. When riding along, doesn't seem to matter which gear even though I've only had it happen in 4th, 5th, and 6th, I will lose power for a split second. This only seems to happen when I am right and steady at 2500 rpms. It doesn't seem to be as strong when it does happen since I switch to thundervolt wires but it does still happen. I have checked the battery and main breaker terminals to make sure that they are tight and all looks good there. I have searched online and through this, and the other, site to see if anyone else has reported this but it only really seems to be me, except fr thepeople that have had the breaker failure. One thing with this, when I was having the maximus tune done on the bike they did say that they had noticed a voltage spike during the test even though this could be totally unrelated. Thanks for anyone's insight into this one

Check your battery and terminal connections. If you haven't swapped out the breaker next to the hot terminal on the battery; this would be a good time to do it. $5 at NAPA I think.

You should be riding above 2500 rpm. That ain't no Harley, the 106 loves to rev, so ride at 3K+.

It does rev. I still feel weird running twisty roads in 2nd gear but 3rd is too low RPM.

In the twisties, I was running 'er between 4,000 and 4,500 rpm for greater throttle control of the bike.

Thanks Bbob, I will check the battery terminals again and make a trip to the nearest napa sometime tomorrow.

I hear what you are saying. However I don't believe it should be happening even if I am just above the point of lugging the motor. It doesn't seem to be a problem for anyone else which may be because of the way that I ride or I am just having some kind of weird issue. I have thought at times that whatever causes this might also be causing my lower gas mileage but I think I am just trying to match things that I might not understand about this specific bike into one possible solution so that everything could be taken care of with one fix. When I first got the bike I was getting about 42 but after the first couple of tanks it dropped to 35 which I just attributed to the way I ride. And then when I got the tuning done they remarked on the weird voltage surge. Right now however I just want to try and take one thing at a time and try and fix or understand it and if it does happen that multiple things clear up because of it then all the better.

Any more details on the weird voltage surge? Also, who did your tune and what, if any, modifications have been done to the motor/intake/exhaust/ignition?

All the best,

Mine does that too sometimes right at 2500. Rather than worry about it, I figure its just the ECM and the PCV bungling the handoff. In any case, it is inconsequential.

I don't really have anything right now but am planning on hooking the maximus back up and logging a ride and then reviewing the data so I can see if I can tell anything myself. The only modifications that I have done to the bike is a Lloydz air filter and tri-oval mufflers which were put on the bike before the tune was done. The thundervolt wires came a while afterwards. Ryan at 801 motoworx did the remote tune
