I recently installed the cobra speedster slashdown exhaust with fuel controller and now my bike will lose power and even shut off sometimes while riding. Any suggestions?

Check your sparkplugs, could be running too rich or too lean. you either arnt tuned right or the fuel controler is bad

Checked the spark plugs...they look good. It's hit and miss, somedays it runs fine other days it struggles

Did you make sure the pipes are on tight... and that you re-tightened them after 100 miles?

I feel for you man...did you call Cobra? surely they can help you. Wouldn't be good for cobra to mess with a bunch of chatty Fury boyz: street cred and all that, y'know. keep us in the loop, please. I'm looking for low, throaty pipes, my self. the cobras are a tad high pitched for my taste. yet they are very rad looking.

You might

I know the fuel controler has a ground wire . it sounds like a loose ground or maybe where you grounded the controler is a painted bolt so its not making a good ground so under a load it looses the ground . Just a thought David

I'm thinking a ground issue too. IF your settings IN the cobra weren't accurate i don't think it would be as much of an issue as you stated. Try the ground then call cobra if it doesn't help.

My brother had the same exact symptoms you described it was on a VTX 1800 and his was tuned in a shop, he thought it was one of the wires going into the module was intermittent which a friend of his had that problem, but it was the ground. He cleaned the paint from under the screw reattached the wire then painted it with clear touch up paint to prevent corrosion. His bike ran the rest of last summer without a problem.

Just an update, recently came back from deployment and had to replace the battery (wife let it sit :mad:) and found that the fuel controller wasn't grounded out properly. Got the new battery in and the fule controller grounded out and the Fury is running great. Anyone in the Camp Pendleton area looking to ride hit me up. Thanks for the help.
