Prob with 08 Gix 750
Afternoon ladies. I don't get on the forums often but I figured this was the perfect spot to ask my question.
I've recently started having a issue with my baby. My 08 GSXR 750. In 4th gear, at about 6rpms, there is a dead spot. Meaning, I can roll on the throttle but it will not accelerate. Then all of a sudden, it will skip past the dead spot and jerk forward. Keep in mind the bike has just over 3k miles on it. For all intents and purposes it is brand spankin' new. All it's normal services etc etc. So when my bike intially started having this issue, I called the shop I purchased it from and left MESSAGE AFTER MESSAGE for someone to call me back. Only after showing up in person did I get a chance to actually speak with someone, and this is what I was told. The bike needs to be remapped. they "see this common problem alot when the pipe is swapped out" it's going to cost me 75 bucks to have it remapped. I explained to them I had the issued BEFORE I put the pipe on. They pretty much ignored what I said and just reiterated that it needed to be remapped. Mind you they haven't even looked at the bike at this point, just listening to me verbalize the problem. Has anyone else ever had this issue and if so, what was the resolution?
At this point I honestly feel like I'm being taken advantage of due to the fact that I'm a female. Any suggestions?
Also if anyone lives in the Atlanta area, can you suggest a good shop to take my bike to?
Thanks in advance
