wr running rough in top gear only?
Posted August 27, 2008 - 10:27 PM
only picked my bike up last week and have done 150 miles already.
problem only started after i refueled the bike two nights ago.
the bike has started to cutout in top gear , seems very strange as i can pull from low down in fourth all the way to limiter no probs but as soon as i change in to top it starts hesitating and pulsing no matter what throttle position im in .
i have fitted a new plug and air filter and made no difference.
any help or ideas would be much appreciated.cheers

Just trying to rule out TPS... but I don't know if that even applies on a 2000 model.
I would also rule out a vaccum leak maybe... how did the plug look?

bike has always been used on the road.
how many hours labour do yous think it will cost to fix?

maybe a fault neutral switch???
it because of load?
try short shifting into 4th and pull from real low......interesting!
i doubt 5 th gear it self is the problem, must be electrical.

i have had vehicles shut off turning left , weirder things have happened . that one was a ground cable problem .

it pulls 100% in 4th all day no issues
as soon as i change in to 5th regardless of throttle position or load it starts playing up.
how can it be electrical if only in 5th?
