    Bike has been running great, but im running down the freeway at 80 mph and engine light comes on for a second and bike stumbles for a sec, light goes out and like 30 seconds later engine light comes on very faint and bike wants to stumble again, few seconds later light comes on fully again and bike stumbles, i then slow down to 70 mph and lights on the speedo start flashing, blinker lights on the speedo come on solid , i roll off the freeway and realized the bike had died, it then back fires and i come to a stop and the horn starts going off, bike was freaking out, i turn key off and back on and no fuel pump, but display lights on the speedo appear to be normal, at this point same thing every time , turn key on and not fuel pump but lights on the speedo seem normal, besides checking wiring for bare wires where can i start for troubleshooting, what is the sequence of events after you turn the key on? this bike has the wire plus system installed. new battery as of 4 weeks ago. could i have a short maybe be in the controls? i beleive this is a good diagram for my system.

    Possible VFI problem, use ProTune and see if it generated a fault.

    check the battery connections -- I had something close to this happen not long ago and the battery terminal felt snug but were not tight enough in reality -- lost my tach because of it!

    Wire plus doesn't give the option for 2 day shipping and they don't open until Tuesday

    so when this happened to you did you replace the module, and that was the fix, im just worried that maybe there was something that caused this box to blow

    I went with Docs kit as well, so since I dumped all that money I went ahead and spent $100 on a new voltage regulator since it was the original one which is 12 years old anyways and actually just went ahead and got a new battery as well at that time.

    If I were you I'd replace the VR as well must for piece of mind. Quite honestly my VR tested fine I just figured while I'm rewiring it won't hurt. One less thing to worry about later.

    I went with the RIP-II kit... 3 hour install. Might be an option.

    You can't get the RIPII...you have the wire plus you need an entire new harness since you had to cut it up for WP install.

    You can go with the RIP Gen I kit and Curtis may have those in stock ready to ship.
