Exclamation Loss of power and bike will not exceed 8000rpm..

It sort of acts as a governor in each gear...I couldn't go past 103mph . Is this an ecu issue? I'm all ears. It's breaking my heart. I thought it could've been the cold and I honestly don't think that's it. I always warm her up to 130-135, so I did that this morning before work and after work warmed her up to about 160. Please help. Any information given would be greatly appreciated.

them issues are normally the fuel filter. get a container, remove the fuel pipe from the fuel rail, point this in the container and turn the ignition on. you should have a healthy squirt of fuel.
other things also cause it but try the easier ones first. others will be along with more things to try, im off to bed

Thank you very much. Will try this tomorrow. If something else, I'll have to take her to BigBoys to get it looked at. :[ It makes me sad, but I love the bike and want her running year round.

Ok...so I checked everything.. nothing. I crank her up..let her sit longer than usual..to about 160 degrees instead 130-140. It didn't do the thing at all. Is this just one of those things that may fix it self or should I let it warm up 160 ^ all winter? I ride year round..and own nothing but bikes. My first zx6r

I cleaned the filter after i rode and the pump just in case. Was in moderate condition but maybe it's just a cold issue..anyone ever have issues with their bike in the cold?

Hadf the same problem two weeks ago my fuel pump was cloged and my injectors were cloged as well my bike would not past 10k and the turned into not passing 7k... took it to the shop my fuel pump was cloged and since the filter is built into the pump it was hard to clean it anyway i would check the fuelk pressure things to check would be

1. fuel pressure
2. spark plugs
3. cloged injectors
4. kinked fuel lines
5. vacum leak


I am betting its fuel related you can try to run some seafoam through it and see if that helps..
