Bike not running right, loss of power, gas? PLEASE READ!!!!!
First let me start by telling ya I have a 2003 R1.... and I woudl like to thank everyone who reads this cuz i know its kinda long...... now heres the problem...
Some buddies and I went out for a nice long ride yesterday. I stopped at BP and topped off my tank using 93 which was already about half full. About 25 miles down from filling up on the E-way I was keeping it steady around 90 mph... not stepping down on it or anything... just cruzing at that speed.... I was in 6th gear and the bike acted as if i just totally let off the gas for like 2 - 3 seconds... then it would come back ( my hand never moved off the throttle) ... i was like wtf was that?
Then it did it again, ...... and again. I THINK the bike might of been running / sounding a lil rough also. I thought it might just be something in 6th gear so I put it in 5th. Went a lil while ok, then it started doing it. I thought it might of just been high speeds or high gears, but when getting off the exit I had it in first and it was doing it again... After getting back on the Interstate it was doing it again and then the bike just quit!!! I got it started back and the rest of the 35 - 40 miles back home the bike acted fine. No problems what so ever???
After getting closer to home I started really getting on the bike and what not trying to make the problem come back if I could but it wouldn't. Two things that MIGHT have smoething to do with it... I put 1/2 take of gas in right before the trip at BP using 93. (I already had a 1/2 tank, so i just topped it off) and getting onto the Interstate I did a big wheelie and after coming down I hit the rev limiter pretty hard and it make a loud back fire noise.... this could MAYBE or MAYBE NOT have ANYTHING to do with my problem. ....
Well the bike has been parked ever since yesterday but today after work I wanted to take it back out and see what was going on..... got it out and the first like 10 mile the bike seemed to be acting fine... then it started doing that thing where it was like it wasn't getting any gas, or i was letting off the gas for a few seconds (but i wasn't) .... I could also kinda feel like a vibration .... and it didn't sound right, and didn't feel right.... Im sorry I can't really explain it that well...... But I got it home and parked it. Please.......... any ideas?????
