GL1200 Losing Power in 4th and 5th gear

Post by SAILOR » Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:27 pm

Today I was riding between Bozeman Montana and Billings, in 90+ degree tempature going 75 or 80 MPH two up towing a trailer and after about 60 miles, I noticed I had no accelaration in 4th or 5th gear. Thought bike might be hot, but temp gauge didn't show that. I pulled off and let the bike cool down for 20 minutes or so. Got back on the highway and had accelaration in 4th and 5th gear like normal. Then after 4 or 5 miles it started losing power, actually seem to also be running rough. Could only get the bike up to 60 MPM. Any idea what might cause this power lose. Note I'm on a long trip. Done 1200 miles already and have 1200 miles to go. I'm a little worried I have some gas problem of some kind. Any ideas?
