I am getting a little hesitation just as I roll into the powerband on my '04. I think its probably just a throttle body sinc issue, or at least that's what it feels like. Anybody have any other ideas to throw out there? 2004 zx-10r 27k miles meticulously maintained. Thanks in advance for your input.

Stock mapping, no powercommander, and its been a good runner for the previous 26000mi, I haven't added or changed anything but oil, tires, brakes, chain, etc.

Try cleaning your air filter and changing your plugs! Bet that works.

Hesitation occurs just as its rolling into the powerband maybe 75k-8k rpm any gear, any speed/load. Its fine after its in the powerband, doesn't cut out, just kinda bogs, like two cylinders hitting the powerband with the other two lagging. That's why I think it maybe just needs a throttle body sinc. I don't want to tear it apart until I get to the 30k mile service unless somebody has better insight as to what else it could be.

I'll change filter, plugs, etc at the 30k service unless you think I could be damaging it by ignoring it for awhile.

Turned out to be the fuel pump. I got a salvage off ebay, when I got it found part of the plastic housing broken that holds it to the metal sump. I used a piece off the old pump and wrapped a plastic tie around the whole thing to hold it together. Pulls like a raped ape now. I hope it holds up, I'll be damned if I am going to pay $200 plus for that new POS factory fuel pump. Maybe I'll check out the Walbro mod for the next one now that I have an extra old one lying around.:thumbsup:
