Mine hesitates/stumbles, and kind of falls on its nuts at around 10.5-12k somewhere. It will pass it and go higher in the rpms. Hard throttle= tiny hesitation. Moderate to low throttle= hard stumbling hestiation.
I personally have replaced plugs, air filter, and oil. Kickstand is already bypassed, but I need to check the jumper still. It was already bypassed when I traded for the bike. I purchased 2 used pressure sensors from ebay for 10 bucks each, haven't installed yet, just got them yesterday. Going to check the Fuel pump out this weekend and most likely replace anyway ( Just seems way to common for these to go bad, from what I have read).
If these don't solve my issue I will be building a leak down tester, lol. The reason I will be building and not buying is, I looked around for one and they just are to expensive, almost 200 bucks for a couple of pieces of air hose a regulator and threaded ends? I think not.
If I get no joy there, I'll be cracking her open.
ETA: The other day I was cruising home form work on the bike, and was coming up on a red light at about 55mph, in 6th gear. It was pretty far away, so I pull in the clutch and kick down to neutral and let the clutch out, as I have done a millions times in the past ( Not on this bike as I have only had it for about 3 or 4 weeks).
I know this can sometimes be a very hard clunky thing. Anyway the bike shut off, I didn't even realize it. So I'm thinking with the hard clunking of the downshift, may have unsettled my kickstand switch, and shut her down. Just a thought. I will vote when my problem is solved, hopefully this weekend, maybe not if I have to buy parts, cuz I'm broke.
