06 suzuki gsxr 600 power loss

I recently installed a yoshimura slip on exhaust. I had no problems for almost a week with this exhaust and today I started having problems. The bike lost power and the idle is a little rough. The bike seems to be running rich. Could this problem result from the new exhaust or could it be a mechanical issue? My local mechanic suggested it may require a new fuel mapping, but this is a slip on and I've been riding for several days now.

I've disconnected and reconnected the battery to see if that would help.

Please advise. Thanks.

That's the only suggestion short of taking it to the dealer or tuning shop. But the slip on shouldn't affect it any.

Is it throwing on codes on the dash?

Expalin power loss, is it in all gears, when you jump on the throttle or ease in the throttle, anything else change other then the slip?? Temp? My raw guess would be a fuel air mix but if u explain more, that may change.

Thanks for the replies.

The power loss is noticeable when I'm at a stop and start accelerating. The bike struggles, but when the rpms build up to 4K, the bike surges forward. The bike then maintains power even through gear changes.

Someone suggested to me it may be mis-firing which I suspect. The bike has 8K miles on it. It ran high octane fuel ( 100 ) before. I'm taking it apart to see if its the spark plugs.

To answer a previous post, the bike does not have any diagnostic lights on.

um, don't all the gsxr's do it? mine does it 100% of the time, even when it was stock.. no power till higher RPM then it like hits a powerban or somthing..

only time mine doesnt do it, is when im lower elevation like.. las vegas, it wont hesitate and when i shift gears in vegas the front wheel comes up when i power it hard.

No, this is not normal. I'm in Chicago, everything here is flat, same elevation.

First off... why are you running 100 octane? Can we say... pointless?

Second, yes check your plugs. Both of you.

However, it could also be associated with your back pressure valve on the exhaust...
