this si my 02 4th 919 that started as a project 3 years ago.bike was running at that point. ( got it after guy crashet it doing a wheelie) did some work on but cuz low budget and no time lasted me 3 years to get to this point when the guy should run again.
i kinda went thrue everything and beside some black smoke and backfirering ones a while i cant get out much more.
sparkplugs new
gas new
gas pump runs ok instaled test led and is up all time during crancking
spark is grate
injectors checkt and they have power+plus removed air filter box and see them working
no self diag lights on
timing is perfect jjust checkt TDC and mark on ingnition sprocket is 100% correct
all the sparck and gas is theare but bam balla bum is nowhere!!!!

last thing ill have to check is the pressure reg to see if is ok but......will see.
if you guys have any clue any ideea or it happend to any of you pls open my mind cuz im going to light up that bike from outside very soon!

I had a mouse build a house in my air filter box one winter... It looks like you already checked the filter, correct?

What are those forks from?

Nice powdercoating! RC 51 forks?

Did you check your plug wires? Make sure they weren't swapped? Sounds like you've got some cylinders firing and others spewing unburnt fuel (hence the popping and super rich burn). Just a guess. Does she need new plugs?

Looks like a nice job modifying the bike....gonna love to see it up and running! Sounds like you've got air, fire, and fuel, but no go huh? Gotta be firing order or plugs, unless the gas is older than a few months old, the ethanol they put in it these days gives it about a 30 day life span before it starts gumming things up. Prolly not much help from me, but here's to hoping ya get it figured out easliy....and get to riding! Good Luck!!!
