So I've already searched the VN1600 thread for this issue to NO avail.
So I've noticed (it started maybe 2 weeks ago), that when I ride my VN1600 classic and after he reaches his operating temp., when I shut him (I'm a female, so I refer to my bike as a "HIM") down to get gas or whatever, and then start him back up it sounds as if he's running out of gas and he will shut back down If I don't give him a bit of throttle (like maybe 3 nice twist of throttle), and then he's fine. This has NEVER happened prior, so it's new to me.
When I initially start him up ( for the first ride), he's fine, NO issues what so ever!
I do monitor my charging system with a volt meter thingy I have attached to my battery. So, when I start him up the meter NEVER drops below 10.5.
Meaning when I press the start button the meter will read (quickly) 10.5 or 11 and then shoot up to 14.4 or 14.5.
What can this be? Why is it that when I turn the bike off when he's up to operating temp, and then turn him back on he sounds like he's running out of gas then shuts back down? The tank is FULL when this happens. He won't shut down if I give him a bit of gas tho? As I stated prior this is a NEW ISSUE for me. I've become "VERY" fearful to turn him off due to this issue, bc I do NOT want it to become worse.
Date purchased Feb of 2018 from dealer.
2006 VN1600 Classic
has V/H pipes W/dyno jet power commander 3 (when I purchased the bike it came this way already)
I ONLY USE PREMIUM GAS (gas with out ethanol) , and I keep him full.
VERY "RELIGIOUS" when it comes to the maintenance on him. He goes in on the 29th to have is Neck barrings greased for the season.
Hopefully this is enough info.
PLEASE HELP ME!
