it really feels like it has a fuel filter that is clogged. when rolling on the throttle it is being choked then on roll off it kind of regains some power then on roll on it looses it. in the shop manual i found 2 filters on on the fuel pump and one on the intake to the injector. i think it might be one of those......neither is easy to get to. i just have to find a shop that will try to locate the problem.

It is possible that the bike switches from closed loop (preprogrammed maps) to open loop (O2 sensor and other sensor readings) after the quarter mile. As anotherguy suggests, can you read any codes? Is the shop manual decent? Does it have an EFI troubleshooting section? I wouldn't rule out the filters, either.

Running fine for 1/4 mile then feeling its running out of gas maybe the problem. This symptom is typical of the tank breather tube being blocked. After 1/4 mile just undo the fuel cap for a moment. Many times before this has been the simple fix after op looking for more exotic probs. first. Hope this may solve the prob.
