Fueling Issue

Rode my 2006 GT on a 700 mile trip last week. Last 300 miles from St Louis it was 40 degrees. The last 25 miles were back roads after the interstate. On the exit ramp the bike started acting strangely, the slightest roll-off of throttle would immediately stop all fuel and the bike would just feel like an anchor was thrown out, a lot more than normal (I have put 41,000 miles on it). The rest of the way home the slightest decrease in amount of throttle would just drop the revs and cause the boat anchor sensation - there was no partial throttle situation possible. Was worst below 4000 in lower gears.

I had some of the BBS early in ownership but never changed the airbox or had new software loaded. For the most part it always ran well. I have not ridden it since Friday to see if its still doing it.

Any ideas? It's like 250 miles on cruise in the cold did something to it.

I have had that myself. Or something similar.
I think it has some thing to do with the cruze sticking.
What I have done is once I have parked it for the night I just open and close the throttle fully a few times. the next day it ran/runs good.
Not sure if that is the cure or if is just the fuel mapping that is screwed. That is one reason I have added the PC-V to see if it will help out with that as well.
I get what you describe a few times a year. Usually in cool to cold damp air going down the highway at 100klm on cruze.
So hopefully you will be fine the next time out.
I will keep every one posted on the PC-V on my 2006 K1200GT well that is if the weather cooperates for a few more week. It is getting very cold out here.
