the fuel filter is located under the gas tank.. you will see a hose that runs from the tank to the filter then to the pump.. this sounds like a problem i had a while back.. my gas was bad..and plugs were fucked up..

I had a very similar experience.
Ended up water had gotten into my tank, and got into the engine from there.
I drained the tank, and the carbs, and it runs much better now.
I still have some slight hesitations I did not have before, but I think thats just cause my plugs got fowled up from the water, I'll be replacing them this week.

HELP!! I have a 00 zx-6r with 1400 miles on it and I was on my way home yesterday and I
got about 2 miles down the road and I started to lose power, it started chugging and gasping
so I pulled over, I had gas but I decided to switch to reserve, I let it sit a couple seconds
started it back up and I got about 50 yards before it started sputtering again. It was
idleling rough and it would not allow me to rev it up past 2-3k or else it would stall.
I put some gas and dry gas in it switched it back to primary and let it idle for about 30
minutes at this point it was idleling better and I could rev it to 6k sometimes other times it
rev but it was not crisp and clean sounding. I tried to ride it and it will putt around first
gear but you try second and it just does not want any part of it. No clue whats up! , does this
bike have a fuel pump? And where is the fuel filter as well? Any suggestions would help out
a bunch.

Seat off, Tank off, Airbox off,and they are underneath. Use the plug spanner in the tool kit. You can get to the float bowl drain screws once the tanks off.

Is anyone familiar with removing the spark plug wires, I want to see what color my plugs are but I am unsure of how to remove the wires and I do not want to break anything

your bike doesn't have wires like on a car... it has a boot that sits on top of the spark plug... there is a electrical plug that runs to the boot.. just unplug it and pull the boot up.. simple
