Every once and a while, when i come on to the mav, put the gas to the floor, the bike will lose power and go into limp mode, also says check engine. During the limp mode, it will hardly stay idling. I just turn the bike off and turn it back on, and it goes away. This has happened to me 4 times now over a couple days.

Any ideas? If i take it to the dealer are they able to plug it in and see what my problem is?

Also I wouldn't drive it any more until fixed. Possibly a critical problem with engine and this msg system is put in to use to stop any further damage.

And this is the kind of info in these threads that divide the junior members and the senior members. Man do I look like a tool! Good help Team! Now I know what to look for and clean when this happens to me.

it sounds like your throttle by wire system. My GMC truck did the same thing a few years ago. the pedal position sensor didn't not match the throttle body position sensor. the dealer replaced both sensors and it didn't happen again.

read the codes!
when the CEL light is on
the ecu will show active error codes
then you will have some place to start looking
reading codes are in the owners manual
every model has different procedures

A new member quoted the OP's post #1 with no reply of their own.

Am guessing they are new to forum sites figuring how to quote and post maybe.
