Still no luck.... İ have checked the air filter, connections, even the sparks and it all is fine... There seems to be a fueling problem and like you say Shift_Nashville İ think İ might have water in the fuel tank... İ hope it is that and İ have not damaged any sensors or anything...

Did u cycle the fuel pump before you plugged the fuel line back into the injectors???
I plugged my tank harness in, attatched the fuel line to the tank, propped the tank up, and turned on the bike like 10 Times to flush all the fuel through the pump and fill it with fresh stuff...after that I hooked it all up, and it still ran rough for a minute before coming back to life...

It does sound like fuel issue as you described all my symptoms exactly...
But then again, I'm sure there's a few other things that could cause this as well...

Sounds like water in the tank to me also! I had this issue about a month ago. I alway's wash my bike with water since day one! That's the only way I can get my bike to the most highest desired clean possible. I tried cleanin mine with the honda spray an a few other waterless cleaners an it just doesn't get it as clean as soap an water! But yea anyway......I made the mistake of pouring a bucket of soapy water right on the tank b/c I didn't wanna waste it. And the water got in my tank! I used to alway's do it with my zx9r an never had an issue. I guess the gas cap on my zx9 had a tighter seal? But the first time I ever did that with the 10r an water got in! Started the bike up afterwards an it sounded terrible! So I put some fuel injector cleaner in the tank an rode it! And it ran like shit for a lil while then it smoothed out, but whenever I would go to get on it the bike would huck a buck an jerk like I was ridin a bull in the rodeo! I ran all the gas out a filled it back up. It took about 2 an a half more tanks of new gas an about 5 days for it to get back to normal. I didn't tank my tank off or do anything extra I just rode the gas out an kept puttin new gas in an she got back to normal!

Not sure how you were able to ride it out, but glad that it worked out for ya...
I have an 05' 636 and I never had a problem with water in the tank, so I'm guessing that the 10 maybe just has a loose seal, or the gasket is crappy...when i look real close at my cap when it's closed, i can see a lil gap where water would be allowed through...not sure if I'm missing a gasket for the tank or what??? I'll go looks a a parts diagram right now...

Some have had issues after washing because water/soap got into the sidestand harness connector. Try that. 1st at the kickstand then follow the wires up under the side plastics and find the quick connector. Unconnect it and blow it dry with air gun or contact cleaner. Same for the actual kickstand switch itself. That damn switch is more trouble than it's worth and I removed mine. Bike runs smoother now and no more issues down the road.

Your right about this and if I recall he did use a pressure washer. I wouldn't recommend a pressure washer but what I would do is take off the seat and check to see if any connectors are loose.

How aren't you sure how I was able to ride it out? I told you I got on that bitch everyday an rode her an kept putting new gas in an she smoothed out! My dad told me to do that an he was right!


And you're right about there being a gap where the gas cap is! I never noticed it until after I got water in my tank and I was tryin to see how it got in there? It's a pretty big gap! When I opened the gas cap I had water layin all around the top part around the hole.

UPDATE: Right, the tank has been cleaned but the problem seems to be the injectors. There were brown stuff around the injectors and İ have no idea how. My mechanic says it is rust from my tank which clogged the injectors and also water got into the tank and messed up my injectors. Will be putting it all back together tomorrow so İ will let you guys know.
