The last couple of highway rides I have noticed that the cruise on my '99 Ultra isn't as smooth as it used to be. It seems to surge then let off, then surge and letoff, over and over ... not a smooth application of power or decelleration as it used to be. This is especially noticable going downhill ... where it will add power then drop off suddenly, over and over ... all within a 1 or 2 mph range ... seems to be over compensating then under compensating ...

Any ideas what's wrong?

Thanks,
RB

My '05 Road Glide is doing the same thing. The first thing is to check the throttle cable adj. Sometimes that is the problem.

Good luck.

Bingo ... I had a bit of slack in the idle cable ... adjusted that and it's back to normal.

Thanks!
