Question about 2001 Suzuki GS 1200 SS

1 Answer

Speed limiter! TAZ

It seems that afew guys have found thier beloved bikes have speed limiters! a EXTREMELY UNDER HANDED practice! Mine cuts in regardless of gear at approx. 200 ks. I was checking thru the old postings and found one from Klark Kent, 2003-02-25. It suggests fitting a 1.5 ohm resistor under the tank. Has anybody actually done this ? Does it work? I look forward to any input from my brother GS riders!

Yes it does work..its about a 20c solution from Dick Smith. Shame on you for wanting to go that fast. Email me at yourbusted2@hotmail.com for the person´s details who has done this successfully. Im intending to buy one myself and will do the same. Im told a new can, mod air intake and speed restrictor out changes the bikes power quite effectively to start with.

You can upgrade to a non rev limited cdi or get a bypass for the rev limiter that is on the bike now, they can be found online by searching for rev limiter bypass for your particular bike...

Does the 2002 honda shadow 1100 spirit have a governor or some kind of limiter because mine will not accelerate past 85?


It's only governed by the sprockets. I had a familiar problem. I rebuilt the carbs and had to bypass the fuel relay. Also if itbackfires need to adjust and replace exhaust donuts

Good day. I bought my Suzuki 1400 intruder 2 months ago. It is a grey import. I am going on a long trip end of april. It is fitted(I guess) with a rev limiter. It is fine, when doing short cruises. But...


The reason it's lomited is that the bike handles badly at high speeds and if you need to go that fast you need to buy a bike that;s designed to do so. the intion module from an 1999 midile might let it go faster or one built for USA markey but your getting into a possible other problems and the speed might not be the only thing it might not do. Most of the ones for American markey will run 105 MPh so you might be looking for a tunup problem like a clogged air filter or fuel filter or even worn spark plugs or even the wrong ones.

I have recently put a jet kit in my 1999 kawasaki zx6E! It seems that when i get it at a really high RPM in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th gear, it spits and sputters like its starving for fuel. I was wondering if...


Your not reaching the RPM level for your rev limiter are you? The rev limiter will automatically shut fire off intermittently to keep the motor from damage at high RPM's. I have to admitt I am not up to par an all these newer bikes, but if you jetted the carbs, then I doubt you have a fuel pump on the bike. Most bikes with fuel pumps use fuel injection! Call the dealer who sold you the jets and ask them what else needs to be done, I am sure they will be glad to help.

Engine cuts at 10000rpm


this is your rev limiter kicking in, is it affecting your ability to gain speed? although it aseems to be kicking in a bit premature. maybe your tach is off and its a normal rev limiter. if not try to change your plugs and fuel filter and air filter

THE OIL LIGHT STAYS LIT AND BIKE RUNS ON A LIMITER TZR2501991


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls the Oil Light indicates that the level of 2T oil in the reservoir is below minimum level, pls add.

I could only think of 2 possible limiters:
  • rev limiter since the 2T oil is lit hence the ignition will cutoff at a lower RPM; and/or
  • if it is a Japan domestic model, then a speed limiter designed to warn and cutoff the engine ignition anywhere from 80 to 100 kph.
If you are intending to bypass the cutoff, in some versions, there is a wire from the speed indicator light that goes to the CDI unit. Removing said wire/connector would disable the speed limiter.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

998 cutting out at 9000rpm


so I don't think it should be the rev limiter at 9k. It's not bouncing like a rev limiter it just stops firing the cylinders and the comes back again when the throttle is released. It has the stock 996r ECU. Since I got it I've fitted a smaller battery to make room for frame sliders. Could this cause the bike to cut out earlier? It cuts out then runs fine again. The other things I can think of is fuel delivery. But I'm not sure the symptom is correct for that? Any thoughts would be appreciated. In any case I'll put the stock battery back on to see if that helps, but I wont know the answer until next Friday when I'm going to the track,I recently had a problem with one of my Guzzis acting like that at 6k RPM. Always at 6k RPM, but only under load. Ended up being a restricted air intake. Really strange, because it acted just like a rev-limiter. So, does it only act this way under load, or also if you just rev the bike in neutral? If it's a limiter problem or tach error, it should still have the problem even with no load. If the problem is only under load, then it's either a fuel or air problem.,,,

Top speed


a crash. The reason I ask is with all my mods my bike doesn't stop pulling. If I crack the throttle at 70mph it just climbs. 8090,100,110 with no sign of slowing or mellowing out. But once I hit 110, I get scared of the rev limiter and back off. I mean, if 120 was the true ungoverned top speed, I'm sure the power would mellow off at around 110mph and just slowly inch it's way to 120, right? Anyone with more guts that can shed some light on this subject?? Remember, it's a 750, so your 900cc opinion should differ greatly,i have an 800 so probably just a little difference from your 750. not much though i wouldnt think. first the rev limiter is not so bad. i have not hit it in 6th gear, but have hit it in just about every other gear including 5th. just try it out in a lower gear to see for yourself. it will just kind of cut out. nothing violent. definately makes you wanna ease up or shift up though. mine also pulls very strong up to about 120 mph. 120-130 takes some time. and 130-140 takes quite some time. i have only seen low 140's (speedo indicated. reality is probably about 130 mph as everyone says there is about a 10 % error on the optimistic side) i have run out of road before hitting the rev limiter in 6th everytime. just takes so long to get there. but i would think up to about mid to upper 140'S (again indicated) would be about it. doubt 150 mph could be hit just based on rpms at 140 ish (8000 ish) and how slowly it gains speed on the top end.,,,

Electronic throttle overide


think it's in case of an accident. when bike is on it's side it will cut off the throttle action so nothing (you) won't get stuck between the wheel sprocket/belt.,,
