    Just cleaned up the T-Bag, the petrol used to clean it came out pretty black so at least the filter is a little cleaner. Going to reassemble the fuel pump and put everything else back together now.

    RR except there was no headlight flare when you were revving in the vid....mmmmm

    Corrosion on/in the coil leads.( low voltage )...coil pack fail.( high voltage )..can be evident at low load situations....

    Loose battery terminals--- check all fuses-- bump harness when idling...kill switch --side stand---clutch cut out..uummmmm

    Heaps of stuff to check...

    Well the 2k - 3.5k rpm surge is gone. I guess the T-Bag filter was a bit too dirty previously. I can't test the bike out though cos I am too fucked from all the fuel fumes.. I think am going to have a lie down...

    Alright fellas, well I have sobered up from the sniff and had a chance to test ride the bike. It's running beautifully!



    So the culprit in my case was the T-bag fuel filter. An easy fix fortunately

    I didn't change it, just gave it a clean but if it acts up again I think a replacement is in order. Can't tell you how good it feels to have this bike in perfect working order again, it's oh so very smoooooth vvvvmmmmmmmmmm

    Thanks to all of you who helped me out, have yourself a cold one!

    Order another filter from Suzuki. It's cheap as chips. I think they're like $15.

    You're welcome

    If there's anything I learnt during my electrical apprenticeship, when fault finding, start with the simplest shit first.

    One thing I still do is run fuel system cleaner through all my bikes every few months...a bottle will do about three treatments so will last almost a year.

    all depends on perspective.

    are you the teabaggee or teabagger?
