So one of my buddies pointed out that my bike was blowing out white and sometimes black smoke when revved up high. Then today I was riding down the highway and my bike like cut power. I couldn't get it over 7k and it sounded like a lawnmower lol. After like a mile it kicked back into power like nothing was wrong. Any ideas on it the problems are related or what could be causing power loss?

Curious, when was the last time you swapped the plugs? Is the bike stock or modified? How many mile? Generally fouled plugs are caused by poor mixture levels in the combustion chamber (Usually rich). Does the bike have any oil or coolant consumption issues? I'm new to the Water cooled model myself but from what I gather the engine is pretty rock solid. If the bike cut out then caught it's self again usually means a plug has fouled out then regains it's ability to spark.

Also check the wires... Mine had a bad #4 and had to snip and re-screw the plug cap on.

my 2 cents...
