    Had similar problem in the early fall. I downed my octane rating from 94 to 91.
    Bike still started fine and sputtered only twice on the first tank, of fuel. I did fill
    it up with 94, when I put it to bed for the winter (sure do miss riding). Mine is a 06 Ultra with stage 3. Please keep us posted on what you find eh!
    Merry Christmas to all.

    Sounds like maybe water in the gas, just a thought.

    still doing it? what about before it got down to 32*? how long ago has it been since the upgrades have been done? was the PC set to what you have on the scoot now / been dynoed ?????
