Not pulling at 3k revs in second or third gear, GSX 1250FA
« on: April 18, 2017, 01:23:07 PM »
Bike has 15.5k on the clock. Valve service carried out at 14k. Noticed the last few weeks in second and third gear around 3000 revs, bike not accelerating smoothly. Its as if its not getting enough fuel?? Maybe its always been there and i have only just noticed it.
Anybody else has a similar issue. Any thoughts ideas welcome please?
Cheers

I would return to the company that serviced the bike and tell them of your experiance. My 1250 is as smooth as silk on acceleration.

You could try the common culprit of fuelling issues which is the fuel filter.

Check the air filter too.
