Wow seems like I'm the only one with this issue since nobody else has replied
Larry, when I say wot what I really mean is when I start rolling then really get on the throttle it kind of almost stalls for a second or two (on the power) then picks up and takes off. There's that lag that I've never experienced before on any of my bikes. No performance mods on it, its a bone stock bike. Does Ivans work on the 2014's?From a standstill WOT would probably 12 o'clock your bike. I've never noticed a throttle hesitation when riding the ninja. I'm guessing the second of hesitation you're feeling is probably just a bike in stock trim with sub-optimal ignition timing. I hear ivan's mod helps with that. Not sure what performance mod's you've done on your bike so really hard to say.
Larry, it doesn't do that when revving but it does under load when riding in gear.Sounds like an internal problem flyinglow. I've ridden enough shitty carb bikes to know the difference between smooth fuel injection and the issue you're describing. Does it do it if you're just revving the motor?
WC. . You have an interesting point that I need to check. I have TC set at level 2 (medium) and didn't think it might interfere unless it's on the highest setting. I will report back on this. Thanks!It almost sounds like the traction control kicking in. I have a Mercedes E550 (twin turbo) that would fry the tires if I turn off the traction control. With it on, the car also feels like it "hesitates" for a split second when in reality it's the traction control trying to keep the tires in one piece. Just an idea...I mean I figured I'd throw it out there.
Rcannon, thanks for the link, but I'm thinking it doesn't apply cause I have 0 performance mods..?Guys, It just donned on me..fuel cut. Is this what he"s feeling?
Heres a link. i wont cut and paste as this guy did an amazing job of explaining it, not me. Its for a car, but applies 100%.

Dont worry so much about the warnings...
I'm glad I was able to help. I haven't gotten on mine hard enough to feel the hesitation that you're talking about. Mostly because mine only has 263 miles on it and I'm trying to respect the break in period. The other reason is I'm still intimidated by my beast.Ahh west coast, you nailed it my man. It is the darn traction control that's kicking in and interfering with fueling. Thanks for all the replies and support guys. Fells good to finally be a part of Kawi fam.
