so ive noticed on my 04 vstar 1100 that when im going at a cruising speed and im holding the throttle steady , i feel a slight hesitation from the engine, like it cuts off a little bit.. what could it be?
Ive noticed it on mine while holding a steady throttle while going 65-70 mph
You got a Hypercharger on that thing? Mine does it sometimes when running about that speed on the highway. Different wind direction interferes with the airflow and causes this problem for me. It's a little annoying but I don't feel like swapping my intake right now.
Only time I have noticed mine doing that is when I need to switch to reserve. It will do what you are describing once or twice in the last mile or so before it actually gives out. It's so slight it took me several times to notice it enough to switch before I actually ran out.
on different rides I have thought it did it at other times but its so slight and spiratic I just figured it was my imagination. In my case it's not enough to bother looking for a cause at this point.
