Why did you have the fairing off? To get to the filter?

I wouldn't think what type of oil would make it act that way unless it was over filled of you used gear oil instead of motor oil. There is an under lying problem that is taking place... or maybe just good ol coincidence. It might not be oil related at all.

The fairing is back off, and there are no vacume lines located on that side of my bike, just all of the bullshit vent lines that dont even run behind my fairing.

No, didnt lift the tank. No warning light. It idles fine when its sitting in neutral, but when I put it in gear and move foward a little then let off, it either dies or starts to idle real low. Throttle response is real for the first 1/8 turn.

do you have a power commander? if so check your battery connection and ground connection. Or just disconnect it and then try it

Yeah, I do have a power commander. Ive checked all fuses, and connections that I could find. I guess I will disconnect it, and see what happens.

No fuel additives. Fairing is off, and cant see anything wrong. Iv have even tried the different maps on the power commander website.

If it is that would be infinetly better then your motor being messed up... That would be my last guess to your troubles... you have no fi code, you bike idles and has oil pressure not much else it could be if you fuel lines and vacuum lines are intact.
