I need some opinions. My bike was running really bad after I got it back from the shop. It would be fine for a while (10-20miles) then it would start jerking and bucking and die. I thought it was fuel so i pulled the pump to check it out. The gasket was leaking anyway so I figured it wouldn't hurt. Everything checked out fine. I put that bac together and decided to check the things that were disturbed during the timing chain replecment. I opened up the starter drive gear covers and pulled the starter clutch off. DAMN!! I found two washers stuck to the signal generator. This has to be the problem!! The washers are supposed to be behind the chain guides, so I put them back and put everything back together. Great!! I am ready to go!! Not so fast. It isn;t as bad anymore but after a while of steady cruising (20-30miles)the bike starts missing and bucking. feels like it is running on 3 cylinders. I decided to check out the signal generator to see if it was ok. The resistance across the connector (right after riding and running like crap)is aprox. 250 ohms. The book says it should be between 50-200 ohms. I checked it again after the bike cooled off and it was down to 186 ohms. Would this high reading make the bike run rough? Can a signal generator be intermittently bad??
I wish i had just put the chain in myself now... I don't want to even get into the attitude the shop had about the problem.
From now on no one touches my bike! Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Let's see if gixxer.com can come to the rescue onemore time!!

P.S. anyone have any tips for holding the starter clutch in place without the factory tool????

there shouldn't be a difference in reading when the bike is hot or cold .
does the bike run OK again when left for a while ?
how cold is it ? maybe carb icing (common on your model )

Runs ok when first started but after a few miles it runs really rought, jerky and when you go to shift it stalls.
Not a very cool look for the GSX-R. Dead on the side of the road. It will start back up and run like shit enough to limp it home. so far it hasn't left me sitting. I have 24,000 mile son the bike and it is in the 70's here in georgia. Never gts below the 50's. Thanks for your perspective!!
