2002 Gixxer prob

My 2002 gixxer 1000 is giving me a problem, sometimes not always, when i open up the throttle the bike just "cuts off" like the rpm would be 9000 it would just go to Zero then back up again. I checked the fuel pump thinking maybe fuel starvation at high rpms but the fuel pump was okay. I am thinking maybe it could be the spark wires or the magnet.
Any ideas of what it could be?

You might want to check out the tip-over safety switch.

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

I agree. Something is cutting off your ignition. I would start with the safety switches, like the kickstand switch, tip-over switch, etc.

and make sure the kill switch isn't hung 1/2 way. If the bike has been crashed and the previously mentioned items seem ok. The check for chafed wires in (the kill switch housing), ignition switch (key) around or to all switches and ECM.

I would think that this may be the kickstand switch, and is posssible that it actually is too. if its a random, and unpredictable thing, then yeah, I'd suspect it.

The switch maybe loose. Some are even adjustable. Adjustments may need to done on the kick stand too. I've had to do that after a crash.

That's odd. Years of ridding and many bikes. I've never had that problem.

I guess coz its the heat we have here, I mean our summer's we talking about high 40's (i think 120F more or less) Our winters we reach a minium of like 10C or 9C no less, plus because we are on an Island, we have the humidity factor, sometimes like the past few nites we have had humidity at 80% Taking all these aspects and more does take its toll on parts that normally do not run out easily.
For Example sometimes we have sandstorms, so having a K&N airfilter for 3-5years is good, unlike it says on the box 10yrs or 100000kms, we cannot really do that here.
I checked and re-checked, then i took it to the agent and the mechanic looked at it and said, Radiator needs replacing, i guess i went so he could prove me wrong.. wishful thinking

IDK what to say about the spring other than try your local hardware store or specialty nuts and bolts supplier. As for the rad, I would flush it (several times if needed) Unless its severely damaged.

Its always fun trying to maintain several bikes at once. I usually make a whole day of it and do the little jobs on all three on the same day.
