Do you have the stock software in the ECU or a flash? I found mine ran better after having it flashed. I did the 2wdw flash.

No, no mods besides de-cat and midpipe.

*the good news is a test rode the ZX-10R today.   :046:

Maybe a flash with remap for your new exhaust could be beneficial. After you figure out what's going on here of course.

So, the update on this after 8 days is... no update.

Spoke to service twice, Tuesday they called asking how long the Li battery has been in it; it has since day 1, when brought home.  KAWA has not heard of any issues like this, their 1st recommendation was to check all grounds, batt. etc., so those checked out.

Yesterday, I was told KAWA wants the dealer to hook up the testing equipment and to first test the fuel pump while riding the bike, when the issue happens. Dealer does not have a Dyno.  So I was told they are trying to figure out how to have equipment hooked up, bike fully warmed up and then ride it while paying attention to the testing equip. when it does it, around 7K RPMs, while fully gunning it.....  yeah... I don’t know how bulky the equip. is, but even in 2nd gear, trying to do that and pay attention to the testing equipment while WOT at once, accelerating the way the bike does is not that safe, especially when the bike starts behaving.

Eight days without even a clue is too long. Are they doing anything for you to mitigate?

Not.  The dealer is forward that what KAWA is asking is challenging.  As far as I’m concerned, KAWA should provide a loaner.  I will contact them next week if still no resolution, and request one.  Even if I have 2 more to ride.  I can always test ride extensively a ZX-10R, lol, as if that’s gonna happen.

Well, the battery disconnect is the “standard process” like “have you rebooted your PC?”  LOL

It does feel like fuel starvation, but I would not know if it is hardware or ECU related.  Always a possibility with electronics.

Sorry, but the battery disconnect will do nothing at all.  You need to check the codes to see what the problem is and then there is a certain way to clear them.  Or just take it to the dealer and see what they come up with. 
Here is the way you can check for codes:  How To Read Service Codes:

Turn on ignition.
Push the upper meter button to display the odometer.
Push the upper meter button and left meter button for more than 2 seconds.
The service code is displayed on the LCD instead of odometer. Multiple codes will be displayed in a sequence with the interval of 2 seconds.
Turn on/turn off the ignition to return the display to the normal operation mode.

How To Erase Service Codes:

Turn on the ignition and start the engine.
Keep the idling more than 30 seconds.
Run the bike for more than 5 minutes at a speed of 25 mph or more.
Stop. Turn the ignition switch off.
Repeat the above procedures 3 times.

Service Codes:

11 Main throttle sensor malfunction, wiring open or short.
12 Intake air pressure sensor malfunction, wiring open or short.
13 Intake air temperature sensor malfunction, wiring open or short.
14 Water temperature sensor malfunction, wiring open or short.
21 Crankshaft sensor malfunction, wiring open or short
24 Rear wheel rotation sensor malfunction, wiring open or short.
25 Gear position sensor malfunction, wiring open or short.
31 Vehicle-down sensor malfunction, wiring open or short.
32 Sub throttle sensor malfunction, wiring open or short.
33 Oxygen sensor malfunction or Inactivate, wiring open or short.
39 ECU communication error
41 Fuel injector #1 malfunction, wiring open or short.
42 Fuel injector #2 malfunction, wiring open or short.
51 Stick coil #1 malfunction, wiring open or short.
52 Stick coil #2 malfunction, wiring open or short.
56 Radiator fan relay malfunction, wiring open or short.
62 Subthrottle valve actuator malfunction, wiring open or short.
64 Air switching valve malfunction, wiring open or short.
67 Oxygen sensor heater malfunction, wiring open or short.
94 Fuel supply system malfunction
3A Purge valve malfunction, wiring open or short (Equipped Models).

This is the list of codes for the Vulcan S but they are the same for the Z900RS with a few more added on.   
I don't usually have a big smile on my face, but when I do I probably am riding my bike.

My guess it's an ABS sensor.  Something similar happened to someone else here on the forum and it was the ABS Sensor.   I am amazed that these expert haven't found anything yet.
I really don't like dealerships.  Their mechanics sometimes are sub par.  Good luck and I hope they will be able to figure out something soon.

I won't speak for the OP, but I'm fairly certain that no codes are being thrown.

What makes you say that?  Most of the time if there is an issue there is one or more error codes.  Why shouldn't be there one in this case?

Because in an earlier reply, he said that no codes were coming up.
"And to the dealer it went, who was able to replicate the issue right away since bike was hot from the ride. No codes stored."
