gas? spark? chain slippin? - July 3, 2007, 09:45 AM

I don't really know what it is? On my way to work this mornin, about halfway through my ride (hoodbridge to chantilly) the bike started to act up. The bike began to st st stutter when I would try to get into the throttle, at first I
thought I had a flat or something was on the tire (nope). Then I thought the chain might have been slipping but chain and sprocket teeth look fine(probably not this). misfire?, bike runs fine and idles fine problem only occurs when I give gas(get on it). bad gas? I filled up yesterday monin. As long as I dont gun it and just cruise every ting is fine.

what is going on?

98 gsxr750. Could be a number of things, could be fule pump, could be cloged fule filter, could be gunk in the carbs, or stuck float bowls, could be bad plugs, could be a clogged air filter.

Start with the cheeper things, check the air/fule filter, plugs, take a flash light and peak in the gas tank.

Make sure your battery connections are tight.

well it is not the fuel, the fuel filter, or the air filter? any one else have any ideas? it really feels to me like the chain is slippin and i am starting to notice
little metal shards every where, it looks like silver glitter. I also noticed that the cover on the left side of the bike by the shifter is extremely hot.

and the batery cables are tight.


HELP!!!!

How do you know it's not those things? You can't even narrow down where it's coming from. I sincerely doubt you've pulled the tank and checked any of those items.

You have two sprockets you know. Pull the cover on the countershaft and look at it. Roll the bike forward or backward so you can see all of the teeth.

I know its not those things because I checked all of those things. I did narrow down where it is coming from. I said I think it is the chain and explained why, and asked for any other ideas pertaining to this. I sincerely doubt you know what I have done and what I have checked so far. I will remove the cover and check the sprocket.

I've seen counter shaft bearings break... The one behind the sprocket... Not a good thing at all.
See if you can see it while running in 1st on a stand, if its bouncing around thats what it may be.
I've never seen a chain slip without the rear teeth laying almost flat!

I will check for that when when I work on it later. I am not worried about about the rear sprocket it looks good, but the front only time will tell.
