2012 DL1000 Flat Acceleration

Coming home from a 1600 mile trip to Oregon, I went to pass a car and it was like the bike was starving for fuel. The symptoms start at 6k rpm in all gears and at 100% throttle. If I back off the throttle, the power comes back, just not as it normally would at full throttle. I can really hear the butterflies opening with a deep throaty note, but the bike just stays flat. I have Leo Vince pipes with the baffles in, a TFI module that has worked flawlessly since I installed it when the bike was new. The bike has 80k miles. I adjust the valves regularly and use a K&N air filter. I'm wondering if it's the TPS, coils, mass air flow sensor ??? Directions on how to test items would be helpful, I also thought that the ethanol in Oregon gas might have an affect, so I ran techron in the fuel the last 400 miles. No change. Thanks in advance for any advice. Keep it simple please, I'm not a whiz at electronic stuff.

Sounds potentially like a clogged fuel pump filter to me........

I would agree with Brian. I’m sure someone will post up a link to fuel flow tests.

It sure sounds like clogged fuel filter.

It's a pretty easy and inexpensive fix. Hopefully the links to how to do it will show up soon.

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

Is there an actual inline fuel filter, or is part of the pump?

I see a large filter that is connected to the pump for $200 bucks. Is that the filter you are referring to ?

Sounds familiar to me, wish I knew this 4 years ago after a scammed fuel pump replacement. Forum education is very much appreciated. Thanks to all the more knowledgeable Stromers than myself.🏍💨

The factory filter is internal(Fuel pump).
Here is a link to do the filter bypass and install a external filter.

Well...I pulled the tank and pulled the fuel pump. The nylon screen was hardly dirty at all and the inside of the tank looked new. I cleaned what little debris was on the screen with carb cleaner and re-installed the pump and tank. I took if for a test ride. No change. The bike pulls hard using up to 90% throttle. Give it that last bit and it sputters and flattens out. Let off that little bit and it jumps back to life. Does anyone think it might be the TPS sending a bad signal to the computer at wide open throttle?
