Default 2013 Cross Country - power shut off in middle of riding

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone had experience with bikes head up displayarea turning off and on in the middle of a ride... Bike losses power and gear indicator goes out of wak. bike doesn't always stall out though.
The 1st time it happeneded I checked battery terminals and they were loose. It happened again over the weekend so I brought into Sky power in Lakeland to have diagnostic done.
They say nothing is showing an errors when running tests..
With that they suggested i have the bike dyno'd since i have pc5 and lloydz auto time system ...
Anyone have any thoughts???

Thanks,
JT

I would check your main breaker. I have read on the forum about a number of folks having them go bad.

I'm putting my money on the ol' battery terminals being loose.

You need to get in there and tighten them with a 10mm socket or wrench. NO screwdriver.

Default Blipping

So being not even a week old Victory owner, I take it that this blipping is a bad thing for Victory's?

And so are loose battery terminals. Helpful hint: Place lock washers under 'em and keep 'em tight.

It's not bad, it just coughs and cuts off the fuel if it sees the RPM suddenly jump. It gets better as you break it in and if you add a fuel controller and timing wheel.

But also do make sure the battery connections are tight as the others mentioned. Lose battery connections are the most common reason.
