03 R6 Problems

he first problem is that at WOT in just about any gear, the bike has extreme trouble getting over 12k rpms. In 6th gear, the bike will not get above 11k rpms (or 130mph, or so). However, when I roll off the throttle (maybe an 1/8th of a twist, very little), the bike is responsive again, so its a very small area in WOT that just totally bogs the bike down.

The other issue tonight was that after riding down A1A for 2 or 3 miles at half throttle in 3rd gear (about 40mph) and then going to get on it, the bike totally lost power at 6-8k rpms and couldn't get above it. The bike didn't turn off, but its as if the engine wasn't getting fuel, or to that effect, at least.

I have a K&N filter, short GYTR pipe, and a custom mapped PCIII.

I have no idea what these issue can be attributed to, but I would the same problem is causing both issues. After doing research again, I was reminded about the issues that 03 R6's have with the coils, but after calling the dealership, my bike has a record of having the oils replaced under the recall. i know this doesn't rule out that they can still be faulty, but who knows.

Re: 03 R6 Problems

UPDATE:

I took the bike out for a test ride this morning, and i noticed this problem doesn't happen. Which leads me to conclude that it only happens when the bike has been being ridden for a while (> an hour or so).

Does this have any bearing on the possible culprit? Fuel pump? I have no idea....

Re: 03 R6 Problems

Did you try unplugging the power commander to see if you still had the problem? That's probably not the issue, but as least you can eliminate that.

definately

when the bike starts acting up, see if the pump is running. if not, try putting power directly to the pump and see if it turns on

is the '03 fuel injected or carbureted?

injected. you wouldnt happen to know anything about testing it, would you?

is the pump something that would only work sometimes, or is it something that either works or doesnt?
