Load the PC3 map again for and giggles. Just one thing to for sure cross off your list. If you had a lean/rich condition to begin, with your mods, unplugging may or may not have helped up top in the range.

If it's a bad spark plug/coil, warm up the bike all the way, and spray some water on each pipe of your header, if one doesn't boil/evap you know you got a problem. A temperature gun works wonders if you can find one.

Do you have a light on now that you've taken the cover/tape off it?

Ivan did you guys completely disconnect the power commander? Or just unplug the power wire? U would need to completely disconnect it from each and every injector, tps, ect. To take it out of the system. I think it either that or the TPS sensor...

It's not your exhaust servo because you don't have one, you got a full exhuast on it.

^^^This. Don't start ripping out ECUs, if it's a software problem.

If you got a pair of thick leather gloves you can use your hand...

I agree that is not the safe/smart way to check but eh in a pinch its doable.

My 06 zx14 had a somewhat similar problem that was a to figure out. It ended up being a loose ground wire in the wiring harness under the left front faring. Had to remove ground buss and solder wires together. May or may not help your situation but definately something to look at.

No, FI light not coming on, not throwing any codes either, that's why he thinks it might be the CDI box..

It's ridable, I just can't really get on it if I want to, then on turns I can't be on high RPMs because of the hazard of the jerk when it misses..I just have to ride in high gears..

I'll mention this...

Thanks for all the input guys...

Yes pachuco, I will eventually get it to a shop if needed, but like I said, my schedule makes it pretty hard. Plus, the person that works on it has some good expeerience and has always worked on my bikes and done a great job, he has worked on a few other member's on here too.

Thats a great way to learn nothing and become dependent on a shop to do even minor repairs. This is why people dont learn to change sprockets and chains or brake pads.

Mine was doing something similar. But I would loose throttle for a second or two then it would come back. It turned out to be my rectifier going bad. Your sputters are quicker than mine were so it may be something else.
Now that I think about it. As time went on the day it started. I would start having idle issues....

^^^ start there.

We may be car mechanics over here, but an engine is an engine. to us, it sounds like you have an ignition issue based on the video and the info provided to us... almost like a rev limiter.

Not too familiar with bike set ups, but i would start tracing things that would cause ignition cut. on cars, i would be testing coils, looking at plugs, crank sensors, and ignition control modules.

after thought: i've heard of loose kill switches causing this.. like the one to the kickstand.



how many miles are on this bike ivan?
