Does it seem I experienced POOGS today?
Hello guys. Was riding home from work today. Ran through 1 full tank of gas in the past with no fuel issues. This week as my second tank since I bought the bike and it was near the red line but not yet to it. I was going 70 down the highway and was nearing the exit where ibwas going to fuel up. Before I got there I lost engine power. The bike was running around 4500 rpm but when I gave it throttle, there was nothing there. The bike began to lose speed as if I were out of the throttle completely. I was so close to my exit but not close enough. I flipped on my hazards and rode the shoulder. Downshifter d a couple times and kept trying the throttle. All of a sudden I had power again and was able to accelerate a short way to the exit, up the ramp, stop, and then accelerate up into 3rd before getting to the gas station with no additional problems. I didn't think to see how much fuel I put in the tank but I filled it full. Rode about 7 miles home with no more issues. POOGS?
