Hey folks, I just bought a new 01 ZX9r and I have discovered that it has carburetion problems. WHen I shift into hirer gears (starting with 3rd) there is a dead spot at first and then huge surge of power. Acceleration isn't very smooth when steadily applied. Evidently this is common on this bike for 00's and 01's. However, that doesn't make me feel a lot better. What should I do. I am leaning towards a exhaust can and either tuning carb to match or jetting. Actually thinking about a micron slipon with their jet kit. Any comments - thanks for replies.
