While breaking in my new F5 and after putting about 130 so miles on it
I was opening it up but could only get about 60mph.
Stopped checked the engine and found the exhaust thermostat
bouncing around in under the hood. In the owners manual it states
that this sensor requires no maint. Unbelievably the nut grooves
had no appearance of any locktite or other compound.
Check to make sure yours is secure.
FYI

Good point snoace. I've got about the same miles on mine, and just by chance lifted the hold while stopped on the trail, and temp probe was at best finger tight. I hadn't noticed any performance loss, but I'd bet on it if that thing had fallen all the way out. BNetter check em guys.
