Loss of Power at high speed
So I was driving down I95 cruising around 80 mph and the pavement opened up in front of me so I decided to push the old girl to see what she has left in her. I jumped up to around a 100 and then ... loss of power and stall. The only reason I really knew it happened was I stopped accelerating. So I let off the throttle and decelled extremely fast so went back wide open and headed for the shoulder. Once on the shoulder I started the bike and it stalled within a few seconds. Started thinking that I was gonna need a tow but I tried again and then she started right up like nothing was wrong. Made it home with no incident aswell.
If this, or something similar, has happned to anybody please let me know OR if you have an idea what it might be it would be very appreciated.
Also I put this thread in fuel and carbs because that is my guess what it was but not exactly sure if it could be anything else.
