Help. Bike Bogging like a SOB.
Ok, 2008 Versys under 6k miles, I mainly commute to work less than 3 miles away...low on fuel a week ago, fill up full tank and then head to work. While on the interstate, engine starts to hesitate and bog like I'm running out of gas. If I keep engine high-revving seems fine, but the minute I let off it bogs bad.
So, I get it home and let it sit for the week. Today, I take tank off, flush all gas and add some new thinking it may have been some bad fuel. Let it run for a bit, and test drive only to have it act worse. Have to ride cluth and rev engine to get it to start rolling.
Bike starts fine, I can hear the fuel pump upon startup, so I take tank off again, pull the airbox and yank the plugs only to find they look brand new. I can't see anything out of the ordinary with wiring or hoses. Air filter looks fine.
WTF is going on. Bike is sitting under carport with tank still off and I have no clue what is going on.
