'06 600 Limiting at 13k RPM, Won't Wheelie either
Hey everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster.
So I've got an 06 600 that I'm having some problems with. I bought this bike for recreational runs at the track and to do some light stunting on (in closed environments of course). I'm having a couple of problems. First off, the redline on the tac is 16,000 RPMs but for some reason my bike is redlining between 12 and 13,000. When in neutral, if you full throttle it to bounce it off the limiter it stops somewhere between the aforementioned RPMs, but doesn't stay there. It will hit 13k, then drop down to like 6,000 then bounce back up to 12,500 then all the way down to 2,000. It always drops off to some random RPM.
Next problem: The damn thing wont wheelie. A friend of mine has an 06 600 that I tried out and I can get it to come up every time. Power wheelie, clutch up, bouncing. Doesn't matter. His comes up every time. It's like mine doesn't have the power or torque to come up. Also, when I bounce it up in 3rd gear, the bike momentarily loses all power. Maybe half a second to 1 second, then kicks back on.
The only things I've done performance wise is a two brothers slip-on exhaust, and remove the Exhaust Control Valve (FI light was bugging me and the dealership couldn't even get it turned off). My buddy's 600 has also had the ECV delete and runs just fine.
Any ideas? Thoughts? Has anyone else experienced this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm running out of ideas.
P.S. When riding recreational, like just a cruise the bike runs perfectly.
