Motor cuts out

Hi Folks, my 09 RG motor has been cutting out when out for rides. I will be out cruising usually 30-60 mph and then just a quick sputter/backfire and motor will pick up again. I can feel the backfire and notice the radio will power down then on again which makes me think it is electrical. Very random and sometimes happens and sometimes not so I think it would be tough to diagnose or tell a shop to fix as it may not happen for them. I have checked most obvious connections, battery, ECM. I have been playing around with maps in my Powervision and have even taken the PV out to see if that was the but still happens with it removed. Any suggestions?

TIA

Are there any codes? Is it a skip or misfire?

Did you read the stickys in the troubleshooting section on how to access your DTCs?? Holding the reset button for 10 seconds is not the way to check for DTCs.

It is more like a misfire.

That is the front and rear cylinders having no combustion. That is usually a spark plug or spark plug wire problem, I wouldn't think it is coil related because there is no DTC referring to the coil. You could also have a ignition switch or run/stop switch shorting out.

Thnx Ironmark, It looks like I had a short somewhere from the battery. I have checked all my grounds and retightened the connections for the positive cable to the fuse box and motor. I did pull the plug wires off, inspected, cleaned and re-connected. I will take for a test ride and report back.
