Yes the Harley tech has already told me that the only way to get around the speed limit or now is to get a tuner that will override that

I have a '17 street glide and at 115 ish the bike just doesn't go any faster: no limiter, no engine light, etc. It just can't go any faster. The HD dealer used the HD tuner for my stage 1 before I took delivery in 2017. Never had another flash or HD service since then, but by the sounds of it, if they did flash it, I'd be in the same boat as you.

Yeah, this is the part where somebody tells me to replace that old Evo because the new bikes are better.
Bwahahaha!

Just to emphasize what I'm talking about:

What the speed limiter DOES do: cuts fuel to prevent you going faster than whatever the limited speed is.

What it DOESN'T do: Reduce power such that your vehicle slows by 15 MPH, OR turn on the CEL.

However, your description that it does this at 105 MPH regardless of gear is puzzling.... that DOES sound like a limiter.

Sometimes I get the feeling we don't really own these newer bikes/cars any more.
We just get to pay for them and they do what they want with them when they get their hands on them.
Just brought my car in for an oil change and when I paid for it he informed me they updated some engine control module or something, without even asking if I wanted it.

All I know is my bike will not run past 105 now when it used it would run 117 with no problem and the check engine light stays on until I drop below 90 I may have missspoken earlier it doesnít really cut power as much as it wonít go any faster and I have to back out of it do you get the light to go off
