[ PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!!] 01/01/2013

[READ ME! READ ME! READ ME! READ ME!READ ME! READ ME!READ ME! READ ME!READ ME! READ ME!READ ME! READ ME!READ ME! READ ME!READ ME! READ ME!READ ME! READ ME!READ ME! READ ME!] Thank you.

Turns out I had an air leak. But to be more specific, there was an air hose hooked up in the wrong spot. After putting it in it's rightful place my bike hasn't stalled since. Also I get way better gas millage!

( If you have this problem and you have already checked (sprayed carb cleaner) for air leaks and could not find one, if you bike was pre owned I suggest you check the air hose routing diagrams in your owners manual to make sure your air hoses are hooked up in their rightful place.)

A new fuel pump was the solution for SuperBass337 who had the same issue as me in this video.
I recently just ordered a new fuel pump and will install it once it gets here. I will let you guys know the results.
(UPDATE: New fuel pump did not fix my bike.)

I know this video is boring but bare with me. Thanks in advance

This is a video update to my thread on the Kawasaki ZX6R forum.

[ISSUE]

My 2003 Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R idles crazy and often stalls. I can keep the bike from stalling by giving it some throttle. Since I've cleaned my K&N air filter and changed the plugs, my bike has been idling more steadily and stalls less but the issue still remains.

[MY ISSUE HYPOTHESIS]

I think it has to be something fuel related. Like the fuel filter or pump. Reason being is, when my bike goes to stall I can keep it alive by giving it throttle thus forcing gas to the appropriate place. Also thought it could be a air leak somewhere. Maybe the fuel to air mix isn't right. Not %100 though, i'm not a mechanic what's your guess?

[QUESTIONS]

What could be causing this?
How can I fix this?

[ATTEMPTS MADE TO FIX ISSUE]

- Adjusted idle screw to about 15 hundred RPMs while the bike was fully warmed up.
- Went through 2 tanks of gas with half a can of SeaFoam in each tank.
- Clean K&N air filter.
- Changed spark plugs
- Valve adjustment
- Throttle body sync
- New fuel pump
