Bike wont start or run properly
Hi guys. This is long so im sorry. 2018 ninja EX300 with 618 miles and no issues previously
I have pulled(scrapped with the air box but won) air box out put a K&N filter in, a full delkavic exhaust, heated grips, custom made rear crash bungs with exhaust hanger. tapped into the correct cable for tps(this works fine on pcv software) soldered the ground to the main ground on the chassis and put the live on the rear tail light like i have done with the others. this lot works as i can edit and see pcv fine on laptop.
Went to put a pcv on from a diff bike(have done this a few times before without any issues at all) and the bike will not run at all, it just cranks. Unplugged the power commander and it started fine. Went to try pcv again after making sure the corrected values were still in the table, and still nothing, im not sure if i possibly put the input and output from the pcv on the wrong way because i took the connectors apart to see if i had soldered them badly or if there was ant breaks. Nothing, i double checked the correct way to install the wires and still nothing so i gave up as ive not encounted this lockout before with a pcv ive modded to a diff bike. i started to put it back together and only had the headlight and rear tail light on and went to start it and it wouldn't start, had to open throttle a little and when it started it was only running cylinder one. Pulled plugs and although a bit sooted they spark well. put then back in and stil the same, you can actually see the petrol vapour coming from the exhaust when revving it but when you let go it stalls. I thought to try in on a mixing bottle for my nitro car and its fits into the petrol pipe perfect, no pressure on the bottle doesnt start, put a clamp on the to pressurise it and she seems to run both cylinders and revs ok till 4 thou, you then let go and it stutters like mad for a few seconds.
