    this sounds like the
    problem i am having. the bike runs great at 3000+rpm, but between 2500 and 3000 it stutters. really pisses a guy off. this ecm tuning is like speaking greek to me, so i am hoping that st. paul harley has someone there that knows their banana's about this ****.

    This may be on the same subject of mapping, but definitely not a constant issue I've had, and not at cruise: I have an occasionally present hiccup when the bike is cold, under acceleration only. It doesn't happen once warmed up, and it doesn't happen all the time (I'd guess about 50% of the time). When I start to roll on and gain speed, there will be a momentary pause, like it completely kills out, then everything comes back to life and is fine again. It's a brief amount of time, maybe a half-second cut out, but definitely enough to notice. Anyone else have this issue or, if it has been discussed before, a link to the thread?

    Just had to throw another hand up for this problem... Mine does fine at 3,000+ too... But from 2,000-3,000 it has this same stutter this thread is all about... I don't know a lot about ecm tuning, I'm more of a mechanical person myself... =/ guess I'll just deal with it...

    This sounds great, think I'll try it.
    Gbalias, any chance you could email me those maps?
