Hey friends! So I originally went to post this on the air cooled twins page, but I suppose I need to post on the welcome page before being granted permission to post there. This said - I'm going to lay out my issue here as well!

My 2012 Bonneville SE has been feeling a little laggy for the past day. Especially in first, when I go off the line there seems to be a delay in torque. I am able to get off the line slowly but keeping the throttle in the same position, all of a sudden the power kicks in and gets me to the shift point.

I thought maybe I had a flat or my pressure was low in the back. I checked the pressure and its 33 psi - and theres no indication of a visible flat or puncture.

I then park and I'm off the bike for about 3 hours. I start her up and hop back on only to realize the yellow check engine light did not turn off. I then use the kill switch to shut off the bike, turn the key, and try again. Same thing. I rode home very slowly in case, and the light stayed on the entire 20-ish minute ride.

I'm not sure what the issue could be, but I'm hoping someone out there has seen this or has some ideas!
