Hi everyone,
Great forum here! I will definitely be participating. I just got my license 1 month ago and bought my 750 3 weeks ago. I love it! Only problem is the Lag and Pull issue. I do have to say that it's scary, especially when your turning. I also called my delearship and they said people were complaining and that there was no fix. I will be filling out my complain tonight.

Oh yea, my first upgrade are Engine Guards

Congrats on the new bike! My Street 750 has the lag and leap issue as well and in the shop getting a new fuel pump. Not sure replacing the fuel pump is the actual fix but there does seem to have mixed success when reading through the forums. Although some of the success may just be temporary which I would be ok with as long as Harley figures out the permanent fix and does the recall.
I won't ride the bike as long as the issue still exists so I hope the fuel pump replacement works. I didn't experience is during a turn but happened when going up a hill and just about wrecked it. I think the only reason I didn't wreck was because of what I learned from the forum. Once it happened, I knew to work the clutch to help minimize the surge/leap that was about to occur. This forum has a great group of people and glad you joined!

hello
welcome, I am relatively new to this forum and to Harley also.
I have ridden many different bikes for many years though

if I may suggest, please take the riders safety course offered at the dealer, it is very valuable and informative for riders of all experience levels.

as far as the surge and leap problem, I would guess it has happened to most of us that ride the "street" models.

from what I've read so far, I believe the design of the pickup tube on the fuel pump inside the tank is the culprit. it has a bad seal design that can suck air, it may even come off, and it's location isn't in the rear of the tank from what I've read.

it is apparently located in the front of the tank, and as the fuel level gets down around 1 gallon this starts to show up when taking off or going uphill. so keep your tank topped off as much as you can as this may help. I know it's a "wth?" moment when this happens. good idea to keep the clutch handy in a instant. mine first did this taking off from a redlight , it was a moment of panic no doubt.

Harley is aware of the problem and hopefully this will be resolved soon as possible.

yes, this is a great group here and fine camaraderie all around.
