I ride a 2017 HD Street Bob. While riding on the highway, my bike will momentarily lose power. The odometer/ speedometer and rpms drop to zero and the bike instantly slows then just like that, power comes back and rpms and speedometer go right back up. It happens a number of times on a relatively short ride. The bike is stock except for Vance and Hines straight shot pipes. Any advice or ideas?

Eye is the HD guru here, but it sounds like a loss of electrics to me. Is it giving you any codes?

^^^ Yeap.

It sounds like the battery cable or loose fuse or something causing a brief intermittent interruption of electricity is the most likely thing going on. You'll want to see if it's showing a code too in case you need to look in another direction. But if your battery cable is loose and it looses power it usually won't show a code.

2017? Still under warranty, yes?
