Just wondering if anyone has any known issues with the TBW on 2009 CVO Road Glides.
My buddy has had his bike in 2 or 3 times to the shop because the TBW or something is failing.
Just last week, he left his house and a block away he had no throttle. He pulled over, turned the bike off, and restarted it, and was able to idle his bike home. His bike has been in the shop for a week, and no answer about what is happening. About 5,000 miles ago he switched to the 58mm throttle body, but the same thing happened with the smaller throttle body.
It comes and goes. Any advice?
I can't believe it, I have been hesitating posting about this issue because I didn't want to sound retarded. Oh well, I guess you all already could see that part!
I was on my way to the shop two Sundays ago to replace a turn signal lense that had lost a lug and fell off. I was about 20 miles from the house and my bike went from cruising at 60 MPH to idle for no apparent reason. I limped it to the side of the road. I called home to get the dealer's phone number and discovered that I had left my fob at the house. Hell, I didn't think I could get 20 feet from the security fob! Turns out, you can leave it at home, but if you turn it off you can't restart it. Ok, so there is the evidence you need to figure I am retarded. You can override the system so you can restart the thing if you forget your security fob, check the owner's manual.
Anyway, I took the 2009 Roadglide to the dealer that afternoon, and don't you know it worked fine when I took it off the trailer! I left it for them to give it a good once over. Their answer to me was this-they replaced the dielectric solution in the plug for the ECM. They really wanted to blame it on the FuelPak I have installed, but said they did the dielectric and it worked okay. I now have my fingers crossed that everything is okay now. It almost makes sense though, I tend to pressure wash that area and blow it dry with a "Blaster" type blower when I clean it good. So maybe I had dried that area out and the connection wasn't as good. It may have been in my mind, but it almost seems like my throttle response is much better now as well.
Check that out though, it may help. The dealer said that is the protocol for the first thing to check.
For the record, my bike had about 11400 miles on it when this happened.
