Hello,been a long time since i last put up a post!!

This is my second 04/5 10R,on my previous one had no problems with it and run up almost 30k on the clocks.
My latest 10R has developed a problem,was out on it the other night giving it the berries when all of a sudden it seemed to hesitate then picked up again,when i slowed down it felt like it was running out of fuel,stuttering and back firing, but when i gave it another handfull it would chug along then take off as tho nothing was wrong!!At a standstill with the engine running the engine would hunt all over the place popping away with pretty blue flames [night time].
Today i removed the airbox [cleaned the air filter,K&N]and looked for a fuel filter of some sort but could not find one!
Any of you Guys point me in the right direction to cure this?

My 10R engine mod wise has a full Akro,K&N and a PC3.

It is your fuel pump. There is a screen in the bottom of the tank that is the fuel filter That could be clogged.
Screen in the tank or in the fuel pump itself? :dontknow:
Have looked at the PDF Kawasaki workshop manual and there is no mention of this......infact any form of fuel filter!!

The only "filter" is the little bag on the suction end of the pump. It's not a separate part number from Kawasaki and that's why the service manual doesn't say anything about it, but it's there.

I'd be tempted to unplug the Power Commander at the big connector to the throttle bodies - take it out of the system completely - and see what happens.

Yeah, it sounds like a fuel pump. Fine at low RPMS, stuttering or feeling like misfiring on high RPM's. If it is in fact your fuel pump, I have one for sale, not sure how much shipping is to England though.

Right...found the time to have a look,removed the tank and airbox,checked all connections,then started removing stick coils,the second one i removed [2nd from right]had water damage/corrosion to spark plug and inside of stick coil,cleaned up both but then noticed when test fitting plug into coil i found it to be a poor fit!!
So,gonna source a new stick coil and while i am at it replace all the spark plugs!
As suggested will also check the fuel pump filter.
Will keep you informed!
:wink:

When you pull the fuel pump. You haft to take the housing apart and in the very bottom you will see the screen. I have a set of stick coils but shipping to england would be high. Put some diuretic grease on in the coil before Putin the plug back in.
