I have a 04 with 13k km on the engine. It was running great till recnetly the engine jerks right at 10k rpm...feels like miss firing or fuel cut for that 1 sec...it happens sometimes.....engine is running fine after pass 10,000rpm.

I thought i had some dirty fuel or water in the tank..but it is still happening after I did the fuel system/water remove.....

Anyone has any idea?bad spark?dirty fuel?bad timing?


ps.
I had k&N and a slip on...lots back fires.

Kickstand switch is wet.

water moves around under vibration, makes a spark and kills your engine.

It will take you 3 minutes to clean it and voila, bike is again good as new.

NOW GO DO IT before you spend money on anything else like I did.

I was just about to start a thread about this. The same exact thing happened to me on the way to work. So on my way home from work, i got it at 10k and nothing happened, just pulled. It only happens sometimes to me too.

8055Niac, are you sure thats what is causing this? Cause my bike wasnt wet, hadnt been wet in a long time

Maybe it needs a solid tune up and there happens to be a real flat spot in the fuel mapping at that point making the problem noticeable. Strictly throwing darts at the dart board here.

I thought that too so I changed the map and it still happens. Plus, why would it happen only sometimes if it is the map?
