Throttle cutting - andrewnguyen - 05-22-2019

I was riding my 2008 gsxr 750 home from work and whenever I accelerated quickly, the throttle would cut briefly causing the bike to decelerate and then jerk while my hand was still on the throttle. Could this be a sensor issue?

Andrew, this could be a few things. Sensor for one.
Is the gas fresh, or old crap from last year? Was it stored properly?
Has anyone checked the air filter recently? 

What it really means is get someone to look at it right away! Someone qualified, who can also take it for a test ride.
