might be IN.

bike acting wonky since last nights ride. throttle jumpy. dunno what happened. it was perfect and has never acted up. i got a tank of gas and went through dewatto. on the last little bit i noticed it would not run at a steady rpm with a constant throttle. hunting and surging. also it felt down on power. definitely something amiss. i am hoping it's a tank of bad gas and will self-clear as it burns through the gas. but maybe its a throttle position sensor or something to do with the injectors. bah.

i am taking off from work in like a half an hour. am planning to make this ride. but it depends on what happens when i go home and start up my bike. if it seems OK i'm in. if not, im gonna sit home and mope and troll the internet to see if i can find some info to help diagnose.

Had the same thing happen on a long ride to the coast a couple weeks ago after filling up at the 76 in Elma. Maybe its just me but my bikes and suvs seem to run best on Texaco.

Based on personal experience, this issue is not with the TPS. Injectors usually fail slowly overtime unless a wire breaks. Probably not a problem there.

Your EFI fuel pump has a filter sock at the fuel pump inlet, (probably 50 or 100 Micron). There's also a fuel filter at the pump's outlet, (probably around 10 Micron give or take). Each injector also has a filter basket. Doubtful any debris made it into the spray nozzle.

From what I gather:

-Bike is running good
-You gas up
-Bike starts running crappy shortly after fill up

Cause and effect. Try topping off with gas from a station that you know runs well in your bike.

My unsolicited opinion is bad gas or dirty fuel filter.

In my case I suspect they had regular in the premium tank.

i looked at the procedure for replacing/cleaning the fuel filter. what a pain the ass! holi shit you have to remove the tank and un-install the fuel pump and disassemble the fuel pump. you have to loosen or remove fairing pieces, the whole freaking enchilada.

http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=17490.0;topicseen

it seems like this particular bike needs to be undressed and torn down every two or three years to do maintenance: air filter, fuel filter, battery check/replacement, coolant flush/replacement. You have to disassemble the whole Tupperware exoskeleton. Maybe that's brilliant though. Save your maintenance for all at once, take the bike apart, do EVERYTHING, and then hope it lasts for another couple of years. And don't even THINK about valve adjustment. Yax!



wtf kawasaki?

wtaf?

i am going to add some seafoam and ride down the tank and refill and hope.

bike has just shy of 12k and it is garaged all the time.

the potential fuckery happened at the 76 in port orchard across the street from the kfc near the ford dealer.

for now, that place is dead to me.

Made it home alive.

Just in time.

Traffic heck is ON.

OK so - the new gas. Absolutely perfect running all the way home. Smooth as a smooth thing.
