2006 Gsxr 600 Fuel Leak/Power Loss At WOT
Hey guys, "new" member here! (Thought I already had an account) I currently ride a 2006 GSXR 600 with 27,000 miles on it. I know, that's A LOT! Bought it from a local dealership about 1,000 miles ago. I have two main problems that I'd like to discuss before I dive bomb into the bike and tear it apart. Here I go...
1. Noticed a fuel leak this morning as I was getting ready to go to work. Rolled the bike down my driveway, let it warm up and went to go gear up. Came out 1-2 minutes later and noticed a puddle of gas and gas running down the side of my bike. It seemed to stop once the bike had warmed up a little, and I can't seem to duplicate the problem. I also hadn't been on the bike in a good 36 hours. I've got the next two days off work, so I'll let it sit and start it up the night before to see if it will leak again. Posting a video of it leaking and a picture of what I THINK the culprit was, but again, I can't be sure as I can't get it to leak again.
2. I've suspected the bike is lacking power all throughout the rev range and in every gear. I've owned a 2003 Gsxr 600 and a 2006 Zx6-r, both had substantially more power than this bike. I also noticed today that when I'm at WOT, the bike seems to lag a little before it starts to accelerate.
No kinked fuel lines. I've had that issue before, and it feels different. I also make sure to triple check the lines when lowering the tank. The gas tank has quite a bit of rust inside of it. I took the fuel pump out a couple weeks ago, and that too was dirty, so I'm already planning on soaking white vinegar inside the tank to clean it out, and I'll buy a new pump and fuel filter. Should I also inspect the injectors? I have no FI codes, and my TPS is set in the middle. Apologies for the long post, but I figure the more info the better. Thanks in advance. (Can't post videos?)
