Vrod muscle died on me
 
So I was riding for 30 minutes when all of the sudden it died. It will start and run great until I give it throttle and then it dies. Does anyone have any ideas?

First, run the IM diagnostics as explained in this post (clear codes after reading and noting what you see).

Stalling after starting can be caused by any of the following:
The fuel delivery system including fuel tank, fuel cap (plugged vent), fuel filters, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, or fuel injectors.
ECM (electronic control module) problems
TPS (throttle position sensor) problems

Ok I ran through it and No codes were found

So you'll need to check the items mentioned at the end of Post #2. Some of those won't throw a code.

Ok so apparently the ground on the left side of the motor was barely hanging on and broke off but replaced the terminal and runs great again. Thanks for your help

They have a habit of doing that.

I have a similar issue. I'm working on the bike tomorrow and will check out the grounding wires. Thanks for the tip!

90% of fuel problems are electrical.

That's funny but so true.

I feel like a 14 year-old poking around in the dark. Can someone share some pics of the ground strap locations with me? I can't find 'em!

One on each tappet cover area and one on the oil pan rear left bolt to frame.

Here's a couple of pictures scanned from a service manual that shows the critical ground wires. This first one shows the engine ground to the frame located on the lower rear cross member. This frame ground connects to one of the oil pan fasteners.

In this other picture note items "1", "3", "8", "9" and "10". These pictures are for earlier models but the late model wiring is similar.

Steve, you're a gentleman and scholar! I had already started searching "tappets" and wasn't finding any images or videos that could help.

These two pictures just saved me hours searching. Thank you!!! :notworth:
