I have a 05 Rep 1000rr with only 600 miles (purchased from a military guy with no time to ride) and it was in storage. Bike has a full Yoshi exhaust w/PC3
. Bike starts, idles and runs fine.. BUT
if the bike is in neutral and at idle it will bog out immediately if you crack the throttle to a hard rev. If you baby it, it revs up just fine and you can snap the throttle at any rpm without any hesitation. It's just at idle. The other problem is it bogs out at 8000 rpm's also. It has done this since day 1 even with the stock exhaust. It's in the shop and they're saying it's definitely a fuel issue. They're scratching theirs heads also. I know I'm reaching but could any of the injectors be bad, or does the ECM/ECU (computer) have any regulation of the fuel?
The reason I'm asking about the ECM/ECU is because this bike was originally in Japan and built to Japanese specs. Japan regulates their factory horse power to only 97hp for safety. They also block most of the air intake. I have since change out to U.S. air intake and air funnels (larger ports) but I'm still having the same bogging out that I had with the factory exhaust and air intake. The Bike also has the H.I.S.S. (Honda ignition security system) so changing to a U.S. EMC does not allow the bike to start at all.
If the ECM has anything to do (acting as a governor) with it at high speeds, what would cause it to bog at idle while in neutral ?
confused, any suggestions ?
