Runs rough and cuts off
Ok fellas, I have been working on this bike for quite some time. As soon as I fix one problem, it seems that another is there to take its place. I have been searching the threads on this and I still do not seem to pinpoint exactly what the problem is.
To keep it simple, the bike is running rough. I have a 2x1 exhaust with a leo vince slip on, K&N filter, and also a power commander but it is not currently on the bike until I can get it dynoed. My issue is this, the bike will run but seems to act like it is being restricted in the low RPM's. I can open up the throttle all the way and nothing will happen except a sputter for a couple of seconds and then it will gradually pick up speed. If I do that a few times, the bike will just shut off. I have a really hard time keeping the bike running at first idle even with the choke on.
So far, I have replaced the spark plugs, replaced the fuel filter, replaced the starter relay, put some fresh gas in the take with sta bil just in case it sits for a while until I can actually ride it. I think it could be the fuel pressure regulator but I am not sure. Let me know what you guys think the problem could be. Thanks.
