hot shut down
Hello guys. I have a perplexing issue , 04 V2K ,with a Motor trike conversion only 1875 ORG miles on it . Im the second owner. its got an issue . runs fine until ambient air temp is above 80 & then after about 29 mi it will shut down with no sputter nothing.just like you turned off the switch Cycle the key & the speedo rotates but No injection system power up? Let it cool off & boom away you go again till the next time Ive checked battery voltage , coolant is NOT low, I suspect it is NOT actually overheating the coolant or engine,as the fan rarely cuts in. Id like to take my temp gun with next time it does it but Id likely be 20 miles from home , I know my Dr suggested I walk more, but I don't think this is what he meant.
Its as if some module overheats . I have NOT been able to determine for certain if the power loss is ignition or fuel injection save for the fact that when you cycle the key after it quits there is NO whirrr etc from the fuel injection system. Suggestions pls
BTW , this is NOT my first V2K, its my fourth & I have NEVER experienced anything like this with the other three.
