No power between 3500 and 4000 RPM

I have this problem with my bike and was wondering if anyone else has the same problem. It is an 07 DL1000 42k miles. Between 3500 and 4000 RPM the bike has no power and fells like it may not be getting the right amount of gas. If you don't keep trying to accelerate i hear a pop (kinda like a back fire but i don't think it is) when i accelerate hard the bike runs fine between 3500 and 4000 RPM. I just got the valve adjusted and the throttle body sync done. Thank you for you info and help.

That sounds like a fueling issue, do you have a PC3 or PC5? Maybe adding one would relieve the problem.

There is also a known issue with the clutch at those RPM's, you could swap out the Clutch, or just gear down and accelerate so your always running 4k RPM's and above and the engine will be happy.

The V2 does not have this problem.

Take it back to the shop that did the valve adjustment and TB sync, if it was in fact done at a dealer. I assumed it ran fine before that all occurred?

I had the same problem before i got the work done. I was hoping the adjustments would fix it.

Now that I am thinking, it sounds more like it is running too lean......"power commander 5 time". I assume this bike hasn't always been yours, or has run like this since you have owned it? If that is the case, I simply think you may just need more fuel, the typical lean running conditions of the old 1000.

It's too lean. The PC FC (fuel controller) will do the same thing as the more expensive PC 3 or 5 for our needs. You can also get your ECU flashed to correct the problem. Most dyno tuners can do that for a relatively small fee. Or you can borrow a Yosh Box and do it yourself.

I would double check that the throttle body boots are in place. Very common for these to pop loose. At 3500 rpm you should be getting past most of the common lean fueling issues, at least any that would make the bike feel like it isn't wanting to run.
