Engine sluttering

Since turning my bike upsidown and running it like that for a while, it has been spluttering. Not stalling or really sounding like it wil stall, but really doesn't like taking off fast. Once it is going, it only complains when changing gear.
I was planniong on striping her down anyway, changing the plugs, fuel filter etc. Anything else I should check that may be causing this?

Re: Engine sluttering

You gave me good counsil when I was working on my bike so I'd recommed you pull the fuel injection rail and have the injectors cleaned.

You'll have the tank off so you'll only have to remove the left side engine cooling fan duct. There is a cannon plug under the duct that feeds through a large hole in the duct. I didn't see the plug until after I had cut a small notch in the duct to reomve the wires.

The fuel rail is wrapped with wires and hoses, be careful with the cable straps, they can be re-used if carefully removed. Note the position of all cables, wire and throttle linkage before removing the rail. Don't do like I did and install the rail with the throttle linkage going over the top.

Caution, release the trapped fuel pressure in the lines befor removing the hoses from the rail (depress the quick disconects on the fuel pump side to relieve pressure) Be sure to inspect the injector "O" rings. Mine were still soft & plyable so I went with the old ones.

Before removing the injector rail, blow out all debris around the throttle bodies to prevent contamination.

Good Luck

Re: Engine sluttering

Another thing...

If you don't want to pay $45.00 usd for a fuel filter an NAPA 3032 filter for about $4.00usd
works fine.
