My 2000 buell no power on acceleretion?

I think the 2000 x1 was fuel injected. You might have bad gas, a weak fuel pump, a plugged up air filter, any number of things. is there a check engine light on?

I have a 97 bandit 600, could i upgrade the carbs in anyway to improve fuelling and throttle response, or could you recommend an upgrade from the stock carbs?

You got the wrong idea here, if you want to improve fuel consumtion you cannot get better throttle response.If downgrade the carb for better fuelling then of course it will has less throttle response.More response means quicker petrol consumption.

I have a 2003 vtx 1800s with hyper charger and custom exhaust dont know what kind bought it this way.The bike keeps fowling sparkplugs every 4 to6 hundred miles what is wrong with bike

You have a fuel injected motorcycle. It is made to work with a stock intake and exhaust. When you alter the stock system it does not know how to compensate for some of the conditions that will come up. Most people buy a Power Commander and program it to compensate for the changes that the stock system will not compensate for. If you already have a Power Commander then you should hook it back up the computer and reprogram it or look on line to see if there is a better map available for the changes on your bike. If you do not have a Commander get, get one. If you already have one, get your program disc and cables and re-map it or take your cycle to someone who can.

If you have changed the air cleaner intake in any way , or the exhaust system in any way , you probably need to put a Power Commander on the cycle. If you have a Power Commander on the already, you need to hook your motorcycle back up to your computer and try a different map for your CDI box. Fuel injected motorcycles are very precisely made. They do not have the ability to compensate for changes you make to the intake and exhaust. By adding a Power Commander, You get the ability to change the fuel injection/power curve to match the changes made to the stock set up. To fix your bike you have to either put your bike back to stock ,or add (or remap) the Power Commander. If your bike is stock and giving you these issues, take it back to the dealer and have the fuel injection system checked out.

Kind of hard to flood a Fuel Injection takes a hardware failure. But you do have a Power Commander (Fuel Injection Controller) installed, so it is possible that it is tuned for much warmer weather and not giving you the proper mixture for cold weather. Also possible that the unit has fried.

If your Power Commander is anything like mine, it should have a few buttons on the outside for quick adjustments...just remember where it was set at.

You can also hook the Power Commander up to your computer and load the default "map" for your bike. This is the closest you will get to "stock" settings without uninstalling the unit. If you need the default map, just browse to the Power Commander's website. Make a backup of your current map before changing it.

My suzuki dl 1000 k5 hiccups at 2200--4300 rpm

have seen this many times on different bikes. the manufacturers have to get their bikes to pass emission (pollution) tests, and noise tests. these tests are usually done at the same rpm, therefore the manufacturers program the ecu to make the bike run weak on fuel at that rpm. causes what we call a 'flat spot'

can think of no other reason or it would do it throughout the rev range. don't forget that after a distance on neutral throttle, the fuelling will be very weak as the bike doesn't need much then anyway. usual answer is to get ecu re programmed, or fit dynojet power commander, a plug in electrical box, will sort out all the rubbish and make it run properly. do a google search for dynojet and read their stuff.
