So I txt cali and tell him hey nothings wrong with it anymore, decide to head to Daves for a birthday get together and bike started acting up again put some seafoam in it still jerky so I guess a carb job is on the books for saturday really hope it doesn't rain.

When your riding and it starts to act stupid try to stop and open the gas tank lid. Sounds stupid but your vent line might be clogged. When you let it sit it gets air slowly back in the tank. When your riding it pulls vacum and stops the flow of gas to the carbs. Just a thought.

sunny checked it out when it was taken up there I wasn't there I just spoke to him over the phone but I don't think taking out the carbs and checking them is part of a pre buy checklist.

did he sync the valves? I'm just trying to narrow down the possibilities of the problem. doesn't seem like a huge problem still revs high engine sounds fine, no problems with gears, just seems to lose compresion and ultimately power.

Mine had a different problem but might be related...

It would lose power on first gear at 8-9k then jerk with 120% more power. That and the RPM's used to stay up (for a second) whenever I up shift.

lots of tanks with seafoam (follow the formula on the bottle) and WOT later: Problem fixed. Previous owner said he didnt really use it for some time = problems.

Ares I noticed that also in 1st gear but my bros 05 zzr does that too so I assumed they just had a lag point in mid range RPMS I never did blow out the fuel lines so it could just be crud in the fuel line but this morning trying to blow out whatever was in there I got her up to 100 then she bogged down.

Instead of peculating I'd say you start w someone that knows about bikes and work through the easy checks until you get to the fuel system to rule it out.


Otherwise your mind can wander to its limits.

pulled the tank off cleaned the fuel filter and fuel lines also cleanedd the air filter. bike runs a little better still bogs down around 9k rpms in 4th gear i hope a carb clean will remedy that.
