01 GSX-R600 bogs down when I open up the throttle

Rides fine, but if I try to gun it kinda sputters. Also if I take it on the freeway once it gets to a 100mph it bogs down and I have let off the throttle for it to keep going.

Only mods are a Yoshi pipe and K&N filter.

Any help appreciated!

I thought I read if you put a slip on and a k&n you need a Power Commander because it will make the bike run lean. Check the spark plug. I bet it is burned more than 2 or 3 threads.

Riding for an extended period of time can cause some issues.

IIRC, '01 600 is still carbed. If you've installed a k&N and an exhuast, you're leaning the bike out. When you open the throttle, it's choked for fuel. You need a jet kit.

01's are FI. With an open loop system.

I'm running dual bolt on cans, BMC race filter +airbox mod. Still brings my fat up in 2nd. With a stock ecu.

Its your fuel supply. Pump and/or filter. Power commander won't do if your already below specs for pressure and/or volume.

Also if you've had the airbox off recently check the boots to the TB's If they arnt seated they can cause a lean mixture also.

IMO a slip on doesn't require extra fuel to keep it in a safe afr. I agree with the others that it's a fuel supply issue. I would pull the pump and check the filter. Actually if it was my bike, I would go ahead and put a new pump in it. Once down to that point, why not?

Its not just the slipon .. he also put a k&n filter which leans out the mixture even more. Not saying its the problem .. but pulling a spark plug to look at is a pretty easy task.

Lol. Ok. I'm sure it's super lean with that k&n and slip on.

If you "thought" you read it, but aren't certain...you should refrain from regurgitating such nonsense on message boards. Just curious, but what the funk are "burned threads"? I can't believe some of the that I read on this forum...

Are you trying to say he is slightly mis informed and possibly unaware of how a spark plug fails when a lean condition is present?

To both of your comments. I have been looking at this subject of "running lean" too see if some mods would require a Powercommander or remap. Running a slip on (yes a slip on) and a K&N filter will let more air in causing the fuel mixture to be off - causing a lean condition. This can cause damage to valves etc if the condition is left for a while. happens to some ... some just ride and dont give a or have no issues.

As far as the spark plug check .. sue me. I miss-spoke ... If the bike is running lean the ceramic part will be "Whiteish" in color. Running lean will cause the bike to run hot and I looked for the past two hours cause I know I read it .. but it mentioned something about when you pull the plug the top part of the threads on the plug would be discolored.

I can tell you this I read a lot of stupid comments on this forum and stupid misinformation from people. I just move on ...but if you feel the need to be the corrector of all things wrong ... learn not be a fucken douche about it.

To the OP sorry if said something wrong or incorrect .... hope you get your bike fixed.

Lets examine for a second the validity of your "search". Say you're out searching and you come across this rowdy fellow stating unequivocally that a k&n and a slip on sure creates a lean condition. One so great that plugs are burned and ss, cd, or ti valves are in danger. Seems legit as huh? Too bad it's not factual for most bikes. It may appear as though rowdy fellow doesnt mind passing the erroneous spark plug info as seemingly factual data. You think maybe the moral of the story is that much of the info passed along as seemingly factual info is in fact just a case of repeating bs they read? Can you at least see that this happens? A full exhaust makes more of a difference than a noise making can. They don't flow enough additional volume over a stock can. And if a k&n really is enough to run lean, what happens with a dirty oem filter? Is a bike running dangerously rich? The answer is no. There is enough margin in stock afr for a minute change to not matter. Full system, yes, it can become a concern. It's still not likely that severe damage will occur in everyday riding. Don't take all this as an insult.

And I would read a bit more on reading spark plugs. It's not about the color of the porcelain OR looking at threads.
