Bad gas, fouled spark plugs or...?
I took my bike (2005 ZX6r with 3k miles) out for a ride today after two weeks in the garage and at the stop sign it started idling below 1k and then when I acclerated it lost power at 5k rpm then at 8k rpm. I left it out during a major rain storm last week.
I jumped on the highway and sure enough it lost power for a second or so at 8k again. When I say it lost power I mean I accelerated and it just went boggy and wouldn't make power briefly while I had WOT throttle. It started to idle fine at stoplights, but getting back on the highway it lost power again at 8k rpm.
I'm thinking I got some bad gas, fouled spark plugs or water in the Two Bros dual exhaust that may need to be worked out?!
I haven't put gas in the bike since the last time, about two weeks ago when I put it in the garage.
