    Sudden loss of power + choking/cough noise and jerking 2016 GSA

    Riding at steady low speed on the street (~20mph), experienced sudden loss of power with changed exhaust sound (choking/coughing) and rhythmic thumping. Physically felt like a flat tire - the sense of driving through mud with the thumping - but it isn't. Orange alert light and check engine icon came on.

    Rebooted (ignition button off/on) and ran fine for a mile between there and the gym, where I am now. No alert/engine light. Operating temp and oil level fine. 4500 miles on the odometer.

    Loss of spark in one cylinder? Loose plug wire, bad plug? Glop of oil/water in fuel? Any ideas/similar experiences?

    I did. Error codes coming from right throttle body. Root cause not yet determined.

    And the codes were?
    So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
    And we never even know we have the key
