Unplugging and Jumping the Sensor

I have the same problem with my 2009 ZX10. How would I go about jumping that sensor?

altho code 13 came up about the input air temperature sensor...someone was mentioning something about this previously? to resolve the problem, is it as simple as replacing the existing sensor or...? any help would be appreciated!

Sorry for bringing up a old pist.

I have a 2006 636 and it was doing something similar. When running down side roads and roads less then 40mph my coolant temp would run around 200 F, and it would run great. Then on cooler days or highway speeds my coolant temp would drop to 160 F (which was normal). When it would drop below 180 F it would run its ass off till I hit 11k, then it would act like someone was hitting my kill switch. Regardless of throttle position. I tried all the things listed in this thread no luck. It ended up being a 18$ intake air temp sensor located in the air box to the right of the last secondary fuel injectors. I'm posting this incase someone has the same problem. It's wack though b/c the all the sensors pass the service manual inspections.

Good luck hope it helped

Angry Feels like it hits a rev limitter

Has anyone figured this issue out, I have had the same problem with my 2010 cbr1000rr, replaced the spark plugs, cleaned the fuel system by taking it all out and actually cleaning it, no mods other than a slip on voodoo, but the issue was there before the slip on. I have taken it to multiple shops and no seems to know what is going on with it.

check your vacum lines on your throttle bodies and your pair valve vacum exactly what my bike done when i first got it the vacum that hooks to the t on the pair valve plumbing was hooked to the barometric pressure sensor and the vacum would give the sensor a false reading and the bikes air fuel ratio was thus out of wack this would be the first thing i would check but cracked vacum hoses or a leaky air box could aslo cause similer problems so could a failing fuel pump

if i die at 150 tell em i was smile n and headed for living170

life around 160
