Fueling Issues

Hi. I have 2017 Z650 have done 3000 mile. Having fueling issues (bike hunts) around 3000 rpm on light throttle, seems worse in hot weather. Dealer not very helpful, said its because of emissions and that's how they are. Was wondering if any one else had similar problem or knows a fix.

Is this a common issue or a one time thing? Sounds honestly like poor fuel quality or even water in the fuel. Not sure what the octane standards are in the UK fuel available at petrol stations. But all the bikes shipped here are the Euro emission standards as well and I've never heard of this. If you're using like 87 octane or getting fuel from a cheap station, it may be time to find a new place.

Thanks for reply.
I did think of fuel quality, but usually buy from local BP station and use regular 95 have also tried premium 97 but no difference.
Will have to try fuel from somewhere else.
