Bike won't rev- not fuel filter??
Hi friends. K3 1k with 59,000 miles. I just replaced my rectifier with a series unit and placed my stator magnets in their proper positions (they had migrated). When I got it back together, it tested at the proper voltage, but it wouldn't rev to redline.
Per recommendations, I did the high pressure filter bypass/external filter mod. Fuel flow was unaffected from before to after. Bike felt great on the first ride to work post-mod, but on the way home the symptoms returned.
I then swapped my fuel filter/pump assembly with the pump from my buddy's crashed K3, removing the external filter since his bike's filter was in good shape and the pump was fine prior to his crash.
On the ride home from the swap, it felt perfect. On the next ride this morning, it felt great. The next time I turned it on for the ride home, the symposium had returned, to the point that it was hiccuping on the freeway at 4.5k rpm.
So- the problem appeared post-stator fix and rectifier swap, and persisted through two fuel pumps, one of which had the filter bypass done.
The max RPM varies- sometimes it will bounce off of 7.5k rpm, other times it bounces at 5-6k rpm.
I am lost. Anyone have any ideas?
