Been riding forever, but have never bought any size bike with a Power Commander. Went and looked at a low mileage '18 with a 143 BBK and a Power Commander with Auto Tune. Took it for a test ride... all good until 3rd gear. When I rolled on the throttle, somewhere between 3/4 and full throttle, the bike bogged. I know it wasn't the limiter. couldn't replicate this in 1st, 2nd or 4th gear. Consistently occurred in 3rd and actually, the check engine light came on. Brought it back to the sellers and one mentioned it might be the PC. While I understand (rudimentarily) what the PC does, I've got no practical experience with it. The rest of the bike seems to be in good shape and if it weren't for the CEL and bogging, I probably would have made an offer right then and there. I told them to contact me if they come up with an answer/remedy.

I'm willing to negotiate as is, but need some direction at what I might be looking at, beyond the normal non-PC issues.

Thanks in advance for any input.
