New to the site, lookin for help...
My ride is a 2002 Gixxer 1000. I seemed to have developed a slight performance issue. Here's the 411...
Anyone that rides a 1000 ever notice a performance problem at full throttle?? I seem to have a sick bike that makes me want to kick it over !!!!
EVERY time I crack the throttle all the way wide open, it falls flat... NO power... actually the bike slows down, and I can't get over 115 mph in 6th gear!!!!! Now if I back off ever so slightly, the bike takes off like a bat outta hell... but full throttle it just stumbles like something's clogged. Normal speeds... 100 & lower....NOT A PROBLEM!!! TPS sensor is dead on the money. Spark plugs look great, even replaced 'em and still the same. Put in a K&N air filter, same thing... I"ve never had a problem with full throttle performance before... got up to 188 mph before this!! It's embarassing when freekin 600's, R1's and other 1000's pass me like I'm standin still !!!!!
I can't even power up the front end anymore.... & those that ride a 1000 know how wasy that is!!!!
SO.... anyone know what gives?? In MY opinion, it seems as though it's something ignition related but I can't put a finger on it...if I could, you wouldn't be reading this!!
As far as Mods, the only thing I've done to the bike, but had ABSOLUTELY NO adverse effects on performance is an Akropovic exhaust, & now a K&N air filter. THAT'S IT!!! I've tried the new plugs, air filter, injector cleaner, and octane booster... NOT A DAMN THING helped!!!!
Anyone that has had this problem or knows someone that has had this problem... PLEASE SHARE!!!! I need to know what the hell is up with this thing before I do something my insurance company will not like me for!!!! Any advice is appreciated!!!
