03 cbr 5800 miles when bought
I just bought a 03 cbr with 5800 miles from a dealership about 4 days ago. Btw the bike is flawless looks brand new so Im a happy buyer even though I ran into a problem anyways here we go,
So first off, their ad on craigslist said new tires/battery. Bike was priced at 3800. I got it for 3500. When I got there they said it had new everything. fuel pump, spark plugs, engine ice, oil change. They cleaned the injectors as well. now my problem is not knowing if they are telling the truth. I bought the bike tax free and they floated me the title and I made my own bill of sell.
Anyways My bike drives perfectly fine expect wot when im trying to bang through the gears. Now if I give it like 80% throttle I can bang out the gears just fine, Its the second I full throttle it, it doesn't want to go pass 10k rpms.
Other then that the bike drives fine and since ive bought it bike has 6150 miles on it now.
Now I ran my own fuel injector in the bike, it did seem to run better because at first it was about 8k I wouldn't be able to pass, and I also did see some floating crap in the gas tank, it settled at the bottom of the tank I have no idea what it was, but when i noticed it I started to run fuel injector cleaner.
So any tips and ideas any thoughts? Im reading on this forum and it looks like fuel pump and im really hoping its not, Im pretty handy working on cars, but Ive never worked on a bike before and im not ready for a project just yet.
