Wierd issues after extended rides
D&D Dual slip-on is only performance mod so far.
I tried to search but couldn't find anything pertaining to this issue. While riding in town things run fine I can wrap into it as hard as I want and all is well. Problem comes after extended highway trips at 65+mph, it slowly seems to loose power and responsiveness. If I slowly roll into the throttle it makes it rideable, but if I twist too hard into it it starts bucking and sputtering like fuel cut or cylinder dropping. I have checked all I can think of without randomly replacing things. I know it isn't plugs cause I have checked them and if it was it would do it more consistently. I have ran fuel system cleaner through it and still does it. Only seems to do this while under load, so thinking fuel pump or something in fuel circuit.
Only real history on this bike is that when I bought it almost 2yrs ago it had 722 miles on it...so I have no idea how long any kind of gas sat in it. When I got it it ran fine and I could redline it anytime anywhere with no issues, and I still can as long as I haven't been on the highway beforehand. Bike has been down on left side, landed on sliders and tail section. Pedestrian strolled out in front of me on main street in town...either slide it out or plow her...figured better to let the sliders do their job than risk more damage.
Looking for any ideas or thoughts that would help point me in a more specific direction
