    No it runs smooth all the time except for when I use this gas. The engine light was lit but I've taken it in for service so I hope it does not happen again.

    Found out what the problem was. I have the big 26 in wheels and tires and the drives front wheel was rubbing against the wiring and rubbed through the wire loom and scraped the shielding off of about six wires. Had the wires repaired and all the codes cleared now I'm all good. But I had to pay for it unfortunately but thats the price you pay when you ride big. SMDH!

    The thick group of wires hanging down from the fuse box with the wire loom on it. Just turn your wheel all the way sharp left or right you will see the wire loom covering behind the wheel.

    Best,
