Question Missing/Shuttering 2007 GT

Just curious.
While riding my 07 GT up a steep hill with hard throttle applied, I sometimes get a split second shutter or miss occurring. Has anyone else out there experienced this and if so was there a cause found? I'm not too concerned at this point (It's only happened on two occasions)
Any wisdom would be appreciated.
Thanks, Monty

I had something similar once for a few weeks following riding across Belgium in some VERY HEAVY rain. I noticed condensation on the inside of the filler cap too. I concluded that some water had found it's way in... maybe when refilling? Anyway... after a few weeks of occasional stuttering under load (ie being "eager") it cleared up.

Yup, still happens on mine every once in a while even after new air box / software etc that fixed high idle and BBS. It is when it's hot and decelerating and then slamming the throttle. Doesn't happen too often. Or at least often enough to make me want to deal with the hassle of maybe getting it fixed. It's only a blip or hiccup every once and a while. Not an every day thing. I wouldn't worry too much.

Occasional Miss on 07KGT

Thanks for your replys.
Hopefully this will stay just an occasional issue. I'd hate to have it happen though when I needed to accelerate for a safety reason. I'll monitor it over the coming months.
Regards, Monty
