I have a 2000 V2K. Cobra exhaust, hyper charger, andCobra FI2000. Yesterday I was out for a spin and wanted to "open her up". I hit the rev limiter and it acted as if it stuck. I eased it to the next good stopping point, when I left off the throttle and stayed off for about five seconds or so the fault cleared.
Is this a normal thing or should I get this checked out. On all other bikes I have hit the rev limiter, let off, and the bike returned to normal. This one took about 1/2 mile and the five seconds to clear.
I think there is some sort of confusion since 2004 was the first year for VN2000.
you beat me to it. I was going to point that out.

It acted like it was hitting the rev limiter last December. I cheched the throttle cable and Throttle Position Sensor. Everything was cool for a while. About two weeks ago it happened again, but this time the fault never cleared. I checked everything in my limited ability again. Finally took her to the shop. The Sub Throttle Actuator was sticking. The mechanic was straight up cool. He took it apart and cleaned it out and saved me $250 for a new part (or at least that is what he told me). Has anybody else ever had this problem?
I had that problem on my 900...happened 17 times in 4 yrs but always cleared up instantly.....on the 900 the actuator is not available separate so the whole throttle body was replaced under warranty !!!!
