Hey guys..

Really need some opinions here..

Over the week I changed my tire, (190/55/17 Power race-Same tire that was on before) and changed my clutch lever (Stock, to MSR Shorty).

The clutch lever adjusting screw broke because aparently its about as strong as a paper clip, So i've had a little trouble adjusting it, but either way I can adjust it enough to realize that im thinking it may not be there problem.

Only mods are, Rear set's, lever, D.I.D chain, up 1 tooth in the front, and hot bodies slash cut..

06 GSXR 1000

So now on to the problem...

When im in second gear and I release the throttle, Typically I can give it a quarter turn as soon the the suspension drops and the front tire comes right up and I can ride a wheelie off the throttle until red line, no problem.

Now when I do it, it doesnt even come more then a few inches off the ground.. Ill even try at 70ish, let off and crank the throttle and pull up as hard as I can and the bike only comes about a foot or two up and within a second is back down on the ground.. (anyone that owns this bike, or a bike like it knows.. This would typically lead in you flipping backwards......FAST)

It honestly feels like the rear brake is being applied, but over the weekend we opened up the rear brake and I never hit the rear brake so it couldnt be that.

Im really thinking its the clutch lever causing it, But I would think that after running the bike at the track over 10 passes and ride all weekend, that I would either A. I would smell clutch over time, or B. The clutch would start to slip.

Im really clueless and I dont have my stock clutch to put back on.

Also, my trap times were on average arond 136ish, peaking 138.98, which seemed kinda low to me being as how their are a good amount of bikes there that are trapping 146-148, stock, but that could be because of my sprocket.

Be nice, Im noob material. lol..


Thanks to anyone that read all of this and is willing to offer ideas.

The new tire is taller, not worn down like the old one. Effect is like a tooth on the rear spocket.

That's my guess
Same tire, I sides of the tire was worn out more then the middle, and the even if it were a 180/50 it still wouldnt cause that much of a drop.. Were talking a 1000 that is about as hard to get up in 2nd as a 600.

up 1 tooth in the front,

this might b it!!
.

The sprocket was the same.. Only thing that changed was the lever and rear tire.

Is the neutral safety switch still connected? Why did you go up a tooth on the front sprocket?
Why would that effect power? It just wouldnt start. but yes its still connected I just let it hang. It sits open. I dont know if youve ever looked at it, but its just a little stick like thing that sits outside of the control box and when the clutch is pulled, it lets the piece sping out which lets the bike know you have the clutch in. So naturally when you take it off it always thinks the clutch is in.. No more pulling in the clutch to start it.. WOOT!

I road race and do the twisties and highway more.. not a big drag racer.

Thats your problem. Fooling the bike into thinking it's in neutral all the time forces the ecm to run the neutral map all the time and therefore reduces your power output on average around 20%

Your welcome.:D

I mean I still dont understand how it would do anything other then monitor the safety of the bike when starting it..

But i orderd another stock clutch lever so we shall see...

thanks :thumbup:
