I have a 2010 Phantom with V&N Short Shots, Cobra Powrflo and Cobra FI2000. I've had the bike for 3 months and ride it almost every day to work 20 miles one way. Today i took a longer ride and at about the 60 mile mark while waiting to turn at a light it started choking out. Pushed it into a gas station. It will start right up but has no power to take off. So i go get a drink and sit for about 20 minutes. I come back out and it's fine. I ride it home, another 20 miles and it starts choking out again. I adjusted the Cobra FI2000 to factory and let it sit. Started it back up and let it warm up. Took off to see how it did and its running better than it did since i got it. Went down the road and same symptoms as before. What could this be? Any help is appreciated. Yes it has plenty of gas in the tank.

Many of the Fuel Injection fuel pumps have acted up when they warm up.
See if you can hear it as a smooth buzz not any grinding noises or dead.

So you know the sound so when it stops see if you can gear that same sound when you key on.
Look in the manual about how to test for codes there may be a clue in that.
You can get a hair dryer after a cold start an warm up the ECU to see if it quits when warm.
When it quits does it have spark?

So, i guess it was just bad gas. I bought a new pump but was waiting to put it in until the tank drained down more. Since i didn't have a problem with it for the rest of that tank i chanced it and filled with new gas from a different source. No problems since. I'll take it.
