    Gentleman,
    I am having an issue with popping and total loss of acceleration after my bike is rode for about 10 minutes. I have changed the voltage regulator and coil. It will run really rough and pop then kick back in and out. HELP:dknow

    Did this just start happening? What was the last thing that was done to the bike? How old is the battery and have you checked the positive and neg. cables to make sure they are clean and tight?

    Cam position sensor, maybe. Does it stop doing it after it cools off?

    Evo engine? Try some air on the nose cone to cool down the pick up assembly, this is a common problem

    Harley Davidson Forums Check this link as well, early softails were notorious for losing the ground at the regulator also

    If the last thing you did was a new coil and regulator this is where I would start, have you checked the battery voltage? Why did you change the coil and regulator? What kind of coil is it?
