First World Busa Problems

Hello everyone. I have a 2008 Busa all stock and today while riding everything was going well until it started to Stall OUT between 6500 rpms and 7000 rmps in each gear except for 6th. I don't ride the bike hard but was shocked when it started acting up. So I gave it a little sea foam to see how it would act and that cleared the problem for about 5 miles. I don't know if it was because I let the bile cool down for 25 minutes or if it was the sea foam but after those 5 miles it came back... I took that and broke it down again and let the bike cool down while I ate dinner. After an hour or so it was running good... I didn't drive it far enough to heat it up again.

So Issue 1. Bike started sputtering when reaching 6500-7000 rpms in each gear except 6th.

2. After letting the bike cool for about 25 minutes it ran good for 5 miles then started to sputter.

3. After letting the bike cool for over an hour it ran better but sputtered just a bit.

4. This sputter is more like a total loss of throttle or fuel...


Ideally I would like to know what the issue is and I am looking for a mechanic with a shop that I can take it to in the 45 north region.

I appreciate any thoughts and positive feedback.

BTW I'm betting it's fuel pump/pressure regulator related.

Thanks for the details. I have sent Patric an email to see about getting it in over there to have a look at it.

Any power commander or Bazzaz on it? Im wondering it its something as simple as too much vacuum in the fuel tank and a tank vent not working.

Its a long shot but this is what happened to me about a month ago on my 08 gsxr 750. One of the spark plugs the ceramic, around where the spark comes out, came loose and dropped down and covered the plug gap. It did the exact thing you described. eventually it would run at all.

I would definitely visit Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited on 1960. He's never steered me wrong and he'll get you what you need versus other shops that get you what they want you to have....
