Now when the bike is in neutral and on a stand, it will rev normally with no loss in power.
Have you opened the throttle in neutral and do the same?

Once again I may be wrong. I hope someone like Patrick Tony or Alan can chime in and let me know if I'm an idiot or if its a valid point
I see what you're saying. I figured it was the fuel pump, until I checked for the problem in neutral. I'm not sure if it would be the clutch giving out or not, but I can get in and out of gears just fine. It seems OK.

Yes, the problem didn't arise while in neutral. I could bring it up to the red line If I wanted.




Got a call from the dealership just now. They said it was the PC, they removed it and replaced my bad battery. I was going to replace the battery myself but they insisted on doing so lol. Idc, I just want my bike running normal.

They gave me good news + bad news.

Good news is, they fixed the problem and the bike runs normal.

Bad news is, they lost my CF rear seat cowl while test riding my bike.

No worries. They waived my bill of repairs, and I don't owe them a dime.

It was pretty much my fault and was bound to happen. The cowl was only being held to the frame thing by 2 of 5 screws. I lost the rest of the screws and it would move around quite a bit while commuting.

I paid about 100$ for it, they waived my bill of $250.00+ Not a big deal imo.
