No Codes, runs bad, wont idle well???

changed out what I thouight was bad (watery) gas, bike is still sputtering... not wanting to run right, wont even idle well

throwing no codes and engine lights have never been on

I'm gonna pull the plugs to take a look... do I hope they look like hell and were my cause?

ideas?

it's almost fuel-flangy, but I had that fixed years ago... do they creep up on us again?

look down the tank to make sure the hose is not bad.

no codes so I just test ran her, thinking I could shake the flouralcarbons out

runs decent enough at speed, but craps out after sputtering when comin down to 2-3000 rpm

stalls at idle after short ride

would burned up plugs give me stalling/idle problems?

the nitrous burned up my last plugs

what's the check? while the bike is running, open gas cap, look inside, it should be calm, if it's not, if it's all spray/misting in there then you have a problem?

I did above check, it seemed cool

Might want to check the fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump is crapping out on ya. Chevy fuel pressure guage works on the shrader valve on the right side of bike near the base of the throttle body.

The fuel hose in the tank, is RIBBED for your pleasure, LOL. The ribs "rub" on the inside of the tank causing small pin holes, thus reducing fuel pressure at idle, rough ilde is the result. You need to take out the fuel pump and inspect, even the clamps might be weak.

Check the oil plug for metal...if something is grinding away in there the bike may have probblems runing at certain RPMs.

By chance did you mistake your bike for your boat and drive it into Lake St. Clair ?

Your race tuner might be burned out...replace the pciii. My PC 3 lasted 2 years or 30k miles.

just spent time buttoning her up after taking the
Boss NOSS kit off... was hoping the BN fueler was causing an interference with my PC3 and causing the poor idle/stalling problem.... wrong!

Bike started great. cold start but I could hear the 'auto choke' working, stayed ideling while it warmed up a bit... took her around the block, runs great, shifts great, but by turn three I could hear/feel a 'stumble' in revs as I slowed down and downshifted into first... got up the driveway and before I could get the jiffy stand down and dismount she had stalled

I am headed back out to check for codes now.... just wanted to update the forum on my woes.... I am in serious WTF mode! I cannot imagine it's a fuel flange or loose ground, she runs too well through the gears.... it's an idle-ing problem PC3 shows one lit bar at idle, then lights up like an x-mass tree when throtle is cracked... is my problem my PC3 lost it's mind and isn't managing the fuel at idle properly?

ideas? next thing to check?

what happened to cause you to think the PC3 was toast?

I too have about 30,000 miles on her

Is it possible I just need to reload my map?
