Hi guys, I really need your help on this one. Over the winter, I disassembled my 2002 GSXR1000 (to repair a stripped mounting point on the motor) and upon reassembly the bike smokes like it's running on diesel. It smokes really bad... it has good gas, good oil, and it ran great before disassembly. Infact, in my driveway, when I rev it, it seems to run quite well as well (if not for all the smoke). The smoke is blackish gray. Not blue or white.
I didn't open the motor at all, everything appears to be connected. The only difference is that now I'm running a stock pipe instead of an Akropovic. (no oil sitting in the stock pipe or anything like that).
Anyone have any suggestions? I've even zero'ed the stock ECU incase it was mapped. (using my Teka).
It's like its running really rich for some reason, no FI light on the dash....
How long did the bike sit? All winter or just a few weeks? Are you using the fuel taht was in the tank whilst the bike sat or have you put new fuel in? The unleaded fuels you get these days can go a bit off if left sitting around. Maybe you need fresh fuel, and maybe some injector cleaner??
Still stuck here guys... I swaped throttle bodies, reconnected everything, bike failed to start. So I swapped back to the original throttle bodies and now the bike doesn't start at all... fouled plugs maybe?
what did you do that now the bike wont even run... do you get a dealer error? put it in dealer mode and find out what code its throwing if no codes then when you disconnected things you probably forgot to put them back together... take your time dont rush it... retrace everything you did.. its probably as simple as a plug that your bike wont start or a vacuum line..

Re: Help... reassembled bike and now it smokes!
Ok when you repaired the stripped bolt did the engine lay on its side for sometime ? When that happens the bike will do that for a bit ! Now I would change the plugs and drain the oil ! And I bet you will be just fine ! Let us know what you find !
