Replaced parts and general maintenance:

GASKET,HEAD COVER
GASKET,GENERATOR COVER
GASKET,CLUTCH COVER
GASKET,PULSING COVER
GASKET, OIL PAN
oil change
spark plug change
coolant flush
throttle cable
air filter

Results: starts normal,but before when I started the engine, it  started with high RPMS and RPMSt went down too idle RPmS as it warned up and now it starts with low normal idle RPMS,(which one is normal...??)

-after second gear feels like the throttle disengage and the bike does not go faster till I shit to third then throttle responds, the same thing happens from 4th to 5th gear(I did not any of this issues before I did the maintenance)

I'd review any loose engine ground, vacuum leaks, etc. Basically check over the workspace you were just in and around and make sure everything is a-ok and where it's supposed to be.

What Tyler says.  Make sure all the nuts, bolts, and screws are snug, and the gaskets in their proper places.  Then I'd check all the electrical connectors as it sounds like sensors may not be communicating with the computer the way they should.  The troubleshooting section in the manual may offer some clues.

Good on ya for doing it yourself, too!

Ride on,

P.S. - For the record, I've screwed up these types of jobs just about every way you can.  It's called learning.

I recently did a valve adjustment on my Bonneville and experienced similar issues to yours. Turns out I knocked a vacuum line loose. Plugged back in, good to go. As everyone says, check all of your work, and anything that could have been kinked or knocked loose in the process.

thanks all for the advice,
I rechecked all my work and I found two things;on one spark plug boot , I pushed in and I felt a couple clicks, the air box attachments to the  throttle were loose.. BUT still having the same problem.

I check the codes and I have (code 32 , sub throttle  sensor issue) I took it out to check it with a multi meter for resistance or to see if t was open and it is not open. later I read that you are not suppose to touch them or pull them out. Also it was a little tricky to put it back on,  :26:  :26:  :26:

I am guessing it needs a new sensor $135. I dont want to mess with it anymore

2005 Kawasaki 636 only 24000 miles
selling it for only $3,000 if anyone interested as is...
