throttle

  1. Mechanical and Technical
    Hi all, I'm not very mechanically-inclined so was hoping someone here would be able to shed some light on an issue I'm having. I recently purchased a 2009 ZX6R with ~14000kms on it. Runs well, haven't found any outstanding issues with it, bar one. When taking off from a standstill in first (or...

Normally in 1, 2,3,4 gears it reapond to the throttle. Once i pass it 5 gear the motorcycle hits 112mph to 122mph and when hit the 6...

    Hello all, I have a 2006 zx6r, it has terrible fuel millage. I get roughly 75 miles on a full tank before the fuel light comes on. I had always attributed this to the high flow air filter and exhaust and never being tuned. I decided to buy a Power Commander 5 and have it tuned, Also my fi...

    So I've noticed (at least I think it's fairly different) that my 05 636 has been acting up a little. It's got about 36k miles on it. The symptoms: - When doing speeds of 65MPH+, I noticed the throttle doesn't evenly apply as I'm rolling on. What I mean by this is that there's this zig-zagging...

    He everyone, I just bought an 06 636 and took it out for the first long ride yesterday and encountered a few problems I have never had on any other bike. The first problem- the friction zone on the clutch lever seemed to change by itself from the last 90% of the lever to the first 10%. When it...

Anyway so iv followed the procedure in the users manual, hooked up some gauges, warmed the bike up on...

    I own an 2003 ZX6R with 9,200 miles. For the last two or so weeks I've been having some problems with the throttle getting choppy. To explain after riding for about 15 minutes I'll start to have a problem where the engine cuts in and out as if my clutch is engaging and disengaging. So far as I...

    Hi guys I was installing LED lights on my bike(05 636) and I had to lift up the tank to get to my battery and my friend lifted it kind of high and I feel like maybe something fell off or something because when I rode later that day and the throttle felt weird like it was soft and my revs were...

    Hey everyone, just bought a 99 Zx6. It's been a bit doctored but for 1300$ I thought it was a good deal. Guy drove up on it. Just got an inspection 20 minutes before I bought it. Fresh tank of gas and it started up just fine. But the guy I got it from said he ran into a couple issues. He had to...

    2007 ZX6R sputtering at low rpms, from about 1000-3500 rpm. -After 3500 rpm bike runs smooth. -If i rev the bike in neutral and let go, the idling is smooth for a couple seconds then goes back to sputtering. Changed the spark plugs that didn't do anything. Bike has about 11k miles Really...

    I have a 2000 Zx6r that I just brought out of winter storage. I forgot to drain my tank (which was at about half full), and a friend suggested throwing some seafoam in it to help the stale gas. I went and topped off (I wasn't having the throttle issue on the way to the gas station), and added...

    I have an '06 636. The other day while replacing tires, brakes and plugs I decided to pull the pair system and cap it. I also removed the secondary butterfly valves and cleaned/oiled my K&N air filter. Since then my mistress rides great… until the rpm's go high (like I'm half WFO when I'm not)...

    Hey guys, been riding my 05 ZX6R for some time now, brought it second hand with 60,000klm, just had some work because it was idling really badly and wouldnt rev, it would just die. Now i have new valve shims, valves. and a new set of springs, its all roughly set me back about $2000 including...

    Hey guys, I'm having a problem with my throttle sticking. I just recently replaced the motor, the old one slung a rod. I kept the same throttle bodies and throttle cables etc. I did undo the c-clamp looking housing over the throttle on the handlebar. Now I put it all back together and it won't...

    Hello all, I'm brand new to this forum, all your help is appreciated. My 2004 Kawasaki ZX-6R has been running fine until 3 weeks ago, I left it in heavy rain / light snow (accidentally) and I haven't tried to start it since. Today, I tried to start it this morning. Bike started fine and even...

    Okay so I finally got my motion pro sync tool and I was doing some research on how to calibrate the tool before you go into the adjustment procedure, and the guy on the motion pro website said you need to hook the calibration manifold to the master throttle body or carburetor. Soooo, my...

    So yesterday I tore the bike down and checked my valves and did some maintenance. Everything was good, put the bike back together and did a 45 or so mile ride after to get home from where I was. When I put the bike back together everything was smooth as usual and the cables were routed properly...

    Hi, I have a new 2011 zx6r. It has about 600 miles on it. At about 9500 RPM through about 11500RM if I hold the throttle steady I get inconsistent power delivery. The best way I can describe it is that, while holding the throttle steady in that RPM range, the bike will slow then lurch forward...
