2002 929 power kick

Hello guys!

I have a 2002 929 and maybe you can help me with some tips about what i'm experinceing with my Honda.
On a simple overtake keeping the throttle open on my Fireblade could be a real adventure. At first all good and normal, the amount of power as should be, but, after 2 or 3 seconds, just in time to go back on my lane a power kick occurs. As if i push the NOS button. I hade my share of motorcycles so far, i'm not a begginer, but i have never encounter such phenomenon as this. Like suddenly goes nuts on me, throws me almost off the saddle, i feel like a god damn flag. It's no joke and happens in every gear, even in the 6th.

What do you think i'm faceing here?

That's a one day old picture with me and my Fireblade.

Re: 2002 929 power kick

Possibly the HTEV valve being slow to open? Does it happen around the same RPM point?

The 1000's tail looks good on it

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Except for the power kick, the amount of power is beiond excelent, no complains, none what so ever, the bike runs nice and smooth, but, who knows, maybe you're wright.

No, just when comes to quik revs

At what RPM are you accelerating from and at what RPM does the power kick in?
If you're at say 6000RPM when you open it up, at what RPM does it "kick" in? If you then do it at 5000RPM or 7000RPM is the "kick" 1000RPM high or lower, or is it at the same point on the tach?
Are you running a fuel management device?
Is the exhaust system stock with the HTEV operating?
Do you have a turbo on the bike ;-)

To be honest, it's kinda throws my head on the back, i wasn't be able to look so far, i'm more concern sticking to the bike the only stress is, not once i almost made my way like a bowling ball thru my others freinds bikes.

If you're at say 6000RPM when you open it up, at what RPM does it "kick" in? If you then do it at 5000RPM or 7000RPM is the "kick" 1000RPM high or lower, or is it at the same point on the tach? I usualy cruise around 3500RPM on country roads (100km/h 4000RPM on my Fireblade) and 6000 + on highways. I tend to say usualy happens reving from 3500-4500
Are you running a fuel management device? No!
Is the exhaust system stock with the HTEV operating? just the exhaust can, a Sebring, wich is much more restrictive than the original Honda exhaust can
Do you have a turbo on the bike none as i recall ;-)

In that case, it's perfectly normal. Ride in a gear that puts you just above 4000RPM and it should pull just fine.
What bikes do your friends have that don't do this?

It's not that i don't like it, it's kinda fun every time, but, i was thinking "maybe i'm having to much fun". SV 1000, Z1000, Z750, 1000RR and so on.....

P.S. Maybe because of the exup, is that it's job, that power explosion!?

It's not good for the engine though. The reason it bogs down below that point is that you're flooding the engine with fuel that the engine isn't able to breathe well enough to burn. Keep the revs up.

No, the HTEV is supposed to reduce that step in the power curve, but it doesn't do anything until 8000RPM.

Re: 2002 929 power kick

The way to check is to remove the cables from the servo, and fix the exhaust valve in one of the 3 positions.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

I understand the principle, sounds fair, the thing is doesn't feel like boggs anywere or anytime
