Re: less power for pump
But it is just not getting power. Is there any easier way to test relays than just replacing each one until it works? I have also heard it could be the ground box between the tank and CDI unit? Anything helps. Thanks!what kind of bike do you have? many newer bikes have safety devices which will not allow the fuel pump to power up. Things such as angle sensors kick stand sensor clutch sensor....any of these things can cause you a problem.
I built a custom VTX1800 and it was a nightmare with all its safety devices..,,,

Why do you think the bike would be slower? a cdi is mearly a box that regulates ignition pulses. There is no power to be generated here, unless you're flashing your ecu and re-mapping yout ignition table. Just run the original CDI. It's easier and cheaper to make yourself faster than your bike faster.
I could be wrong but it sounds like your getting air in the gas lines. Is your gas cap tightening correct and working properly? Check all fuel lines to see if you have a crack or loose and air getting in.
hey, just finished huge ride across europe on one. Look at radiator and water pump, check oil levels and type of oil used. sounds like a blockage in water pump and or, radiator or hoses. Check electrical fan is running after bike stops? If fan is not working the bike will over heat as it requires fan to draw air trough the radiator constantly. Terry Tourer Australia
Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50. Use TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL in the pump. If not using an automatic oil pump, then mix the gas and oil 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL to one gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil in the gas. Only two stroke engine oil.
top off the fuel tank to reduce the amount of air in there, less open space means less room for condensation to form and cause rust in the tank. next drain the float bowls if you dont really like pulling the carbs in the spring. also put the battery on a trickle charger to keep it from going bad.
I am having some problems with my 2003 xb9r. It has race ecm exhaust and K&N and about 5500 miles on it. The problem is i am loosing low end power and loud backfire in airbox when down shifting exhust backfires when i let off the throttle. I just put in new spark plugs and changed all the oil and it didnt help. It seems it might be running too rich but i thought the ecm would fix it on its own. I was wondering if maybe i had to get it remapped or something... any ideas?Try to check the muffler packing.,,
