Fuel filters are a couple of dollars, I have several in my spares bag in case I meet a Winger in need on the road~
Let me just shove one thru the dvd drive for you

A qt of DOT4 brake fluid in synthetic is 5$
Find a free piece of wire like from a wire brush or guitar string end

Not having the wife freak out again...Priceless

Aliens on the mother ship? Seriously though, I might raise the bike up and check the wheel bearings, front and rear.

thanks everyone.

Forgive others. Not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.

If your not willing to forgive others, how can you expect God to forgive you.

If it was me, Fuel Filter would be the next safety move.

Your fault was probably caused by the reasons stated earlier in this thread and hopefully you have it sorted now. Something similar did happen to a Honda Valkyrie many years ago while out on a long ride when we were hundreds of miles into the ride. The rear brake on this particular Valk suddenly and dramatically slowed the bike without the foot pedal being touched at all. We pulled up to investigate and the rear rotor was very hot. We came to the conclusion that the fault was being caused by the backing shim restricting the pads movement (you can see one clipped to the pad in the attached picture and they have a white sort of polystyrene layer between the pad and shim presumably for anti-squeal). We took out the shims and the fault never came back in over 40k miles. We used copper slip for the anti-squeal.

A second Valk had new oem rear pads and rota some years later with the shims installed and the brake was also binding. That owner also took his shims out and had no trouble from then on.

I realise these are different bikes and different pads but all information can be helpful when you are hunting a fault.

I haven't found any problems yet, and it has not happened again. Thanks to everyone for all the ideas. If it happens again, or I run across the cause, I will let you know. Everything seems to be working as designed.

Forgive others. Not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.
