Try turning up the idle on it to smooth it out. Does it have an aftermarket pipe on it?

Tear it back up maybe you pulled a vacuum line or something is loose.

Re: \'01 Gixxer 600 problems after K&N Panel install

ok guys i put the stock filter on and something doesnt feel right still.... maybe its just my imagination but the exahust sounds like its missing and has a cam on it (even though its 100% stock)
1. i checked all the obvious connectors and fittings
2. i accounted for all my screws and hardware (didnt drop any in teh intake)


near the battery there seems to be a MAP sensor with no hose on it, does it suppose to be like that? i suppose thats a BARO sensor?

the only other thing i did at the same time is install flush mounts and they work correctly...

hmmm anyone else got any other ideas?

thanks again!

yes that sensore is supposed to be unplugged. no clue why, but it was like that on my 01 600. exact same part number and everything as the one attached to the airbox.

You have to pull the stock gasket out of the airbox. The K and N has a built in gasket.
You cant see the stock one you have to get a small flatblade and pry it out.
By the way I put my stock filter back on as the mid range felt better with it.

thanks for the response but i did remove that o-ring (gasket) and still have the same problem... engine sounds like its misfiring and horrible tip-in throttle.
Ive check all the obvious hoses and connections... maybe i should change my plugs??

BTW: letting it warm up to tempature doesnt help either


thanks

Ok Guys i fixed my problem... after spending numerous hours checking everything i decided to put some new plugs on the bike... well after all of that the new plugs fixed my problem!!!! my old plugs took a shit on me exactly after i installed the K&N filter.... rather odd... oh well, maybe someone could learn something from my process


thanks guys for the time
