Im gonna have to go with MOB on this one.  Its worth a look to check out the air filter.  At least it'll eliminate one thing.

I am pretty sure probably all of us agree that checking the air filter is a good troubleshooting step.  Especially true when there is any type of performance issue and the bike was purchased used with perhaps an unknown or uncertain regimen of maintenance.

Man, couldn't anyone think up a better thread topic title than nasty snatch........

Nobody likes nasty snatch, nobody....

Many a gsxr have this issue when the TPS sensor is adjusted too high or too low......... But who am I fooling, far too many don't think you ever need to adjust the TPS or any of the other sensors......

no problem Max, you can come over and work on my bike anytime, I'll just stand behind you with a cane, and correct any errors during a process... :rotflmao: :chugbeer: :chugbeer:

low speed cold idle is where the airflow is MOST criticle, to make a bike run.. not wide open..

Agreed, although the OP indicated no problem with idle, just with low-throttle dying.

a clogged filter will not idle, but will run at higher rpms, when warm.. [...] any bike can run well when it's pressed and at high rpm,

I am not sure I completely agree with that (not that you would care if I do or not), based on how it was explained to me by my friend (a master mechanic).  He would agree that a very clogged air filter would affect idle and, to a lesser degree, low-throttle dying.  But as the RPM goes up, the amount of air needed goes up tremendously and the engine will get starved for air, greatly affecting performance.  That is what I meant when I said "although that might show more on high rpm."  A filter that is even 80% clogged should have enough air for idle and low-throttle take-off.  OP hasn't said how high throttle/high RPM performance is, but I suspect at a clog level enough to affect idle, it would destroy high performance, too.  This is not to say I don't think it would be a good idea to check/replace the air filter- it is an excellent troubleshooting step, although it isn't all that easy (at least it wasn't to me, lots of stuff to remove, and Canyons in the way too; hell of a lot easier than a valve lash inspection, though).

there is method to my comments, I have been doing this a while.... not trying to be "snippy"

Oh come on, you can't help but be "snippy"!  At least us old-timers know it is your nature.  :)

Could it be the fuel filter in the tank?

not likely with the miles he has, and the fact it runs well when warm, and does not exhibit higher RPM stumble issues.. fuel filter really shows up when trying to maintain constant higher speeds, on longer runs, and is evident by variations in performance "when forced to flow more" than at idle..  The only thing I've found that is really clearly effecting idle speed vs off idle, especially cold, is air filter, and poor quality fuel. The filter had/has little to do with the quality of the fuel.

I did mine this summer, never had an issue, but just did it due to the time it spent idle, and differences in fuel from Va, to Ohio.

probably could have let it go till 60k, but as I was doing the test on new MRP flash, and going to the Nationals.. I did it pre-preemptively..and as I waned to be very precise in my testing, I wanted a perfectly clean system to evaluate the changes... I don't like doing 5 different things, and trying to figure later which really made the difference.. if ya get my drift;  so I won't be doing it for another 30k miles, or much more.

I am pretty sure nobody will agree with me on this, but I'm enjoying Stumptown.
Mostly because it's filmed in Portland, but it's still fun and I used to love the old Fox body Mustangs when I was a kid.
