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

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?

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

That does make me feel a little better about it seeing the mileage you have on yours, thanks

Did this happen before the tune?
Throw the stock tune back on and see if it's still doing it.

I was thinking the same thing because the first time I noticed it was after the first or second change to the tune while they were fine tuning. I have changed back to the stock tune, then put the stock pipes and air filter back on, then put just tri-ovals back on, tried the stage one canned tune, put the Lloydz filter back in. It still seems to happen randomly but always at that rpm. These were also the same steps I used to check the loss in gas mileage, which coincidentally started happening after I had originally put the tri-ovals on. But unless I want to creep outside the original purpose of this post is sort of outside the current subject unless they happen to be caused by the same problem.

Sounds like you tried all the variables if I'm reading that right.

If it's always there maybe it's just a "feature" of your motor?

up until recently I hadn't heard of anyone else that had even noticed it. Depot Picker had said above that he has seen it at that same range but just sounds like he solved it by not staying at that range. Either way, he hit 140000 recently so I am guessing it isn't something that will cause the bike to fall apart and it is one thing about the bike that I didn't understand that I can be mindful of but not really worry about. I will still recheck all of the connections on a regular basis though and change the breaker just in case.

I'll try to pay attention more when riding to see if mine does it. I don't normally hold 2500 just pass through it.

I tried several times today 2500 zero issues.

Does your bike have a Lloyd's timing wheel?

I do not have a timing wheel, the timing on the bike was modified during the maximus remote tune. The problem is that it is a really random issue. I can run at 2500 for a while and not see an issue but some days I might feel it once or twice
