Rubicon2006, motor cutting out

My Rubicon only has 610 miles still almost new, just yesterday I rode it and it started cutting out in 2nd and 3rd gear at a medium rev. about 22mph. I checked everything, carb is clean, air cleaner, valve clearence, fresh fuel. I think it might be electronic like it has a goveneur on it or some kind of safety cut off, what could it be? Hope someone can help. STU

Thanks for the welcome. I hope there is someone out there with some ideas that may help. I'm stuck and now thinking I might have to take into a dealer for help.

Do you have any flashing lights when you turn the key to on? -- D1 D2 etc? I have read all kind of problems with the angle sensor, but I know nothing about those models. The newer ones are fuel injected too right?

I have a 2004 Rubicon and mine did the same thing...spark plug. I went to Adv Discount Auto - $11. Local Honda dealer had it for $17, but matched the $11 price.

first..let me state...i know nothing about the new models...i do how ever know how a motor works..and i can't quite see how a spark plug is gonna change how a motor will fire in one gear..two gears...then quit on the rest ???..nope..i gotta argue this...if a spark plug is gonna be bad...it's gonna make that motor run bad in all gears. i would say something either electrical..or fuel issue..but not a spark plug.

i agree with ^^^^^^^. it sounds like either spark or fuel. when you say cuts out, do you mean it sputters and rpms go up and down, or it falls on its face then picks up again??? that might help.

Does it run rough then you put it in reverse, it could be running in safe mode, do you have any lights flashing, such as D1, D2. Sometimes they will flash ---. You could try initializing the ECM. The procedure is as follows: With the switch off press and hold both shift buttons at the same time, turn the switch on while holding the shift buttons, when the "N" starts flashing let go of the buttons the press the buttons in this order UP DOWN UP at this point you should hear the shift motor start working while the shift motor is working press the throttle all the way open then let it off. See if this help the problem. ~~~~ AL
