My (2000) Daytona 955i to start, is fuel injected, but there is hesitation in the throttle currently and it sometimes dies when in idle or after i hit the throttle downshifting and coming to a stop. Could i have given the bike bad gas, and if so, what now can i do to rectify it? Should i treat it like a car and put gas treatment solution in to help, along with super or plus instead of regular fuel??

Hi JRWill and welcome to the site,why no profile?are you a spy or do you have something to hide? any way welcome
Is there a reason you think you may have put contaminated fuel in your bike?if so what sort of contamination would this be? this would be info anybody would need to give advice without having to speculate.Good Luck
First thing to check
Make sure the overlow drain pipe isn't blocked or nipped,leading to water ingress everytime you open the filler cap. If it is,unblock it (may need to actually run some stiff wire down the hole as thye can gum up badly) then dump the fuel and replace it with fresh. If not that,have it plugged in at a dealer and check that the stepper motor is working
That sounds like problem with the IACV hoses. I had the same problem on my 99 daytona.
Here a read of this link
TPS o-ring swelling
If it's cutting out when you blip the throttle it could be that the o-ring behind the throttle position sensor has swollen and is catching on the throttle potentiometer, so it doesn't rotate freely and sends spurious messages to the ECU causing the cut-out. the TPS is on the end of the throttle bodies and it's easy to remove the cover and replace the o-ring. The only tricky bit is resetting the tps accurately as it has no stop position at either idle or full-throttle. you really need to hook it up to a laptop or diagnostic tool to set it at a certain voltage for the idle position. Though I suppose you could mark it before removing and see if that visual method works first.
