Question about 2004 Suzuki SV 1000 S
I replaced the air filter with a k&n and the thing has more power but still the same problem. Let me describe the problem in more detail. If I am approaching 7000 rmp in 4,5,or6 gear and I give it wide open throddle, the bike not only doesnt accelerate right away, it slows down for a moment, then, when I roll off the throddle it accelerates. I will change the plugs and let you know if that helped tomorrow. Thanks in advance. My bike is a Suzuki sv1000 with removed baffles
It is possible that the bike is running very lean in the top end, I would either get a Power Commander or get a tuning center to adjust the ECU with a Yoshi box or something similar. By the sound of it you are using aftermarket Pipes, this will cause a leaner mixture problem, then add to this a K&N filter which is free flowing will make the issue worse. The ECU is not self adjusting so it will only give you the fuel that is set by the factory. When you pull the Spark Plugs, see what color they are - White is lean, black is rich etc.
