    Went for a ride today and all of a sudden I lose power on the EG. Turn the throttle and nothing. I look down and the engine light was on, it was hot out at the time, but no hotter than any other time. Anyone got a clue?

    No sputter, no work done, checked all necessary connections, charging system good. Did do a ride on Friday in the rain for a wounded war hero coming home from Iraq, about 120 mile escort round trip. Bike did start right up again with no problems. Second time it did it bike started and all worked well but engine light stayed on.

    I have had this happen on my 08 Ultra. Behind the air cleaner on the rear of the throttle body is a connection. Can be seen and disconnected without removing the cover. (at least with an SE air cleaner) Disconnect the connector and clean with spray contact cleaner. I usually then spray with WD40, reconnect it. Problem should be gone. I do this every 5k service now, problem has not come back. Reset the codes, or after 50 starts I think it will reset itself.

    Willl attempt this in the morning. I have a SE heavy breather on the bike so it should be easy to get to. How do you clear codes?

    This is from the link I sent you above. See step #8:

    1- Turn Ignition switch to OFF & Run/Stop switch is to Run.

    2- Push odometer reset button in & hold.

    3- Turn ignition switch to Ignition and release odometer reset button. Background lighting sould illuminate, speedometer needle should sweep its full range and indicator lamps (battery, security, low fuel, check engine and cruise) should illuminate. The word “diag” should then appear.

    4 - Push the odometer reset button once and you will see the selection menu "PSSPt" with the first P flashing.

    5 - Each letter represents an area of the diagnostics module. The module that is flashing is the one you are going to check. To move from one letter (module) to the next, you push the odometer reset button one time. (from P to S to SP to t and back to P, etc.)
    P = ECM/ICM (Electronic Control Module [EFI] / Ignition Control Module [Carbureted])
    S = TSM/TSSM (Turn Signal/ Turn Signal Security Module)
    SP = speedometer
    T = tachometer

    6 - To get the DTC within an area of diagnostics, push and hold the odometer reset button in for 5 seconds and release. If there are any DTC’s the code will be displayed or the word “none” will appear if there are no DTC’s. Push the odometer reset button again to view additional codes if they exist.

    7 - Record the codes.

    8 - If DTC’s are not to be cleared, Press and release the odometer reset button. Part number of module will be displayed.
    NOTE: To determine if a code is current or historic, clear the displayed code by pushing in and holding the odometer reset button ( longer than 5 seconds) until 'clear' comes up. Release the odometer reset button. Turn OFF the ignition switch. Run your bike and shut it down then recheck the DTC’s again by repeating steps 1 to 9. If the code is current it will reappear.

    9 – Press and release the odometer reset button to continue to the next module.

    10 – Turn Ignition switch to OFF.

    TQ
