Well i dont really know what the problem is so maybe someone will.:icon_lol:
The Bike: Stock 05rr
Just picked it up about 2 weeks ago with 1700miles.
It now has about 2400miles.

I was out for a cruse yesterday (nothing hard max 10k and about 50miles round trip) to visit family, out of nowhere the bike got much quieter and had a loss in power. I pulled over to check it out but really did know what to look for. So i fired her back up?! starts great, idles perfect and in neutral will rev just fine but when in gear the bike feels like it got kicked in the ballz. I dont really know where to start, i mean it still runs no weird noise...:dontknow: I kinda feel like something is clogged if that makes sense. I searched for loss of power but did find anything relavant. Also No error light are on etc.
thank you:beer: -Simon

I have the same year but have never seen this problem, if I were to add some opinion I would say start simple. If your comfortable with it pop off the tank and get in to the throttle bodies/Air intake and make sure there isn't something stopping air flow. Less air = less power, simply put. I think in neutral it may not be taxing the intake like it does under a load, i.e. when it is in gear about to take off from a stop. Sorry nothing definite but I hope it takes you the right way.

Check the vent lines coming off the gas tank a kinked line
might be the reason read a similar problem to yours a
while back and a vent hose was the reason

Take a look at this picture
part # 34 is the drain tube

could possibly be bad gas. i work in a car dealership and i think just about everyone of the 13 manufacturer's under the roof have had atleast one vehicle this summer with fuel contamination. i just had a gmc envoy that had water/algae in it. under acceleration it would misfire on cylinder 6 and under deceleration cylinder 1 due to the water/algae in the fuel rail. contamination in fuel reaps havoc on fuel systems (filters, injectors, pumps, etc.) unfortunately the only sure way to fix fuel contamination is through disassembly and cleaning of the parts. just out of curiosity did it start acting up after a recent fill up?

yes it did, i filled up after i left and it happened about 5 miles later. I had that happen in a car and i just ran the gas out and filled back up and it was ok. i hope thats the case.
i check the air filter and the return line both where ok. thanks for the help, i hope it just the gas....

thats what i would figure from the sounds of it. i know gm recommends sticking to top tier stations and apparently so do a few other manufacturers according to this article: http://autorepair.about.com/od/generalinfo/a/110305.htm and here is another good website as well http://www.toptiergas.com/retailers.html. not saying that it is a bad company but i know the vehicle i had to repair had just filled their tank up at a gulf station. the station has also been around for a while and it would not suprise me if the water/algae in the fuel was due to a leaky tank at the station. if you can take a sample of the fuel. if there is water in it will separate and typically looks murky like pond water. its up to you but i would try to siphon it out and put new fuel in.

Per Moe's post the other thread he was referring to the vent hose was pinched - caused all kids of issues - check that first, the guy who posted the thread had a sucking noise when he openned the fuel cap after running it for a while (aka fuel pump is working against an air spring)

update!
Bad gas.....so i siphoned the tank and got most of the gas 90-95% out. went to a different gas station and filled a can with 2 gallons of new gas. problem solved! I just let it idle for about 5 mins then drove slowly for about 2 miles. then I put her to the test.....She passed. thank you to all who helped -Simon
