Unhappy kingpin miss or hesitation

at low rpm's 1500 to 2400 i have developed a miss or hesitation, very furustrating, i have checked and replaced the nipples on the throttle body helped but not the answer, replaced the exshaust gskt's no help, checked the thottle body boots for cracks or air leaks none found, there are no engine codes flashing either, bike just started doing this within the last 600 miles,

Fuel pressure low?
Have you cleaned the throttle bodies?

What year bike?

Sometimes a fitting in the fuel line will develop a leak and not provide proper fuel pressure.

I don't know what year they stop using them but if your's has it try to reset the thottle positioning sensor. Mine did that that after I cleaned the throttle bodies. Once I reset it bike started run smooth again.

Check and make sure your plug wires are firmly clipped to the plugs

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

ok i have checked the plugs they seem to be snug and there is no tracking on the top of either plug, checked fuel pressure at idle carries 38 lbs rev to 1800 drops to 33 lbs, not sure what the pressure reading should be.

Fuel pressure should be 49 psi no matter what you are doing
