Question about 2001 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja

Open Question

Bogs down at 5000rpm loses power

2003 Kawasaki Ninja 636 ZX6R. The bike has been sitting for about a year (didn't change the gas). Bike is NOT carbureted its fuel injected (getting injectors cleaned tomorrow). After changing all the gas, oil, and coolant the bike idles fine and in Neutral revs fine but when I put it in gear the bike gets to 5~6K rpm and bogs out regardless of the gear. No smoke out of the exhaust. Let it idle for about 2 hours with a potent fuel cleaner and still the same result. Checked all vacuum hoses (Good). Checked all electrical (Good). Has a longer fuel line we use on our lawn mowers(Pressure is still good and the inside diameter of the fuel line meets the specs for the bike just the length is longer) so the assumption is its not the fuel line. Assuming its not the injectors I need to know what's next on the list. I'm a DIY GUY so taking it to a shop other than mine isn't an option.

SOURCE: 2002 kawasaki zx6r bogging down

i got a 99 kawasaki and the reason it would bogg down like ur 2002 had to do with the vaccum system. there are 3 or 4 hoses that are connected to the gas tank, make sure they are connected in the right place and not crossed with one another. another place to check is on top front of the carburators. the hoses that connect there from the front of the bike cannot be torn and leaking. there is a simple diagram picture of the vacuum system under the seat of the ninja. these locations i have told u have been a problem for a carburated run 99 ninja zx6r

Hi, Matt it saddens me to inform you that you have to put on your Battery Priest Robe and prepare yourself for the Ceremonial "LOAD TEST" but before you begin, maintenance type batteries must be topped off with distilled Holy Water and all batteries must present their terminals to the battery charging altar to receive the electrical infusion of Holy Ions until they have reached a 100% full charge of 12.5 volts or better.
Below is a quick and easy test to see if your battery is in good condition or needs Last Rites and must be replaced.
1. Start by disconnecting the spark plug cables.
2. Adjust voltmeter to DC volts 20-volt range
3. Place the voltmeter leads to the battery terminals.
4. Turn the run/off switch to run.
5. Turn the ignition switch on and press the starter button.
6. Watch the voltmeter as your engine turns over for 15 seconds.
7. If the voltage drops below 9.5 volts, the battery is faulty and must be replaced.

Let the bike sit for a bit, try and restart it first. This sounds like you just flooded it. Post again if the problem persists and I can assist you with some further actions.
