Figured I'd present the problem here as well as contact Bazzaz for help.

Got my Bazzaz in the mail today and installed it per the instructions. Went to turn the bike on before putting everything back together and I get nothing but the bike turning over.

So the obvious troubleshooting started.... checked every connection 3 times over, cleaned the grounding locations, checked all fuses (just in case), made sure no fuel lines were pinched and the list goes on.

Long story short the bike will run if I
-connect the bazzaz to the front cylinder injector and leave the rear alone but leave bazzaz connected to all other connections

-don't connect bazzaz to either cylinder, leaving it connected in all other locations

-Installing the bazzaz injector connections in reverse will make the bike run but it obviously isn't right.... you can hear that it's not correct.


Anyone have any ideas?:confused:

I am sure Bazzaz will get in touch with you and see what the issue is, they are probably the once that can pin point the problem the best......

I agree. Just figured there was an off chance I am just missing something trivial or someone else ran into this.

As an update, just incase someone looking into a bazzaz finds this thread and thinks twice.

Seems I just have bad hardware..... from my research on all forums (from ducati to yamaha), this seems rare.

I'd just like to say Bazzaz's customer service/tech support is excellent. Just sent my system back so the problem can be diagnosed and fixed or replaced.

As for installing the system, which I have repeated three times now for trouble shooting purposes.... it's pretty simple except for the crank position sensor. That connector was so far buried between the cylinders I needed to employ a tiny handed female for help.

Glad it will soon be worked out!

I also employ a tiny-handed female, but for a different job......:D

I'm not trying to challenge your mechanical prowess. The Bazzaz website does suggest having a professional install it. Once you've got it running give us a final report so we have certainty on whether it was the product, or if you just missed something. Tks.

If you can remove the tank and seats from your bike you are mechanically capable of the install. It's not difficult for a streetfighter. I've done much harder and more complex jobs.

I had a bad control unit on a DynoJet Power Commander on my Monster. It was stuck on 100% duty cycle, so you could barely get the bike to start, and it was shooting raw fuel out the exhaust. :eek:

I don't how rare it is but their tech support didn't believe me until I sent it back and they tested it themselves. Then they sent me a new one and all was well.

Closing the loop. Bazzaz ran some tests on my system and found bad o2 sensor eliminators were to blame. They replaced them and after a few hours of reinstallation, my sf is running like a champ. Between the bazzaz and a 14t sprocket, riding around town is no longer a pain (actually quite smooth for. Twin).

To anyone who hasn't put on a 14t sprocket.... Seriously the best cheap improvement you can make.

Ps you never realize how much your tank has grown until you try lining up the bolt hole to reinstall.

Is it req'd to chain swap with the 14t or can you keep the stock chain?

Stock chain works fine as long as you don't change the sprocket/chain pitch (520 from 525). Chain adjustment was required but is straight forward.
