Re: engine missing threw full rev range and rpm...
Sounds like you definitely need to do a major tune up, that being you need to adjust the valves and cam chain. You most likely have very tight valves which will cause the erratic idle and misfiring. I'd also check to make sure you don't have any air leaks in the intake manifold. A cracked manifold will certainly cause a problem like this. One last thing would be to make sure the carbs are synchronized. If they are out of synch you will never get the bike to idle smoothly. Let me know if these recommendations help or not. I'll advise after you post your findings.

Park your RSV 1000R on a well-ventilated, level area, using its kickstand.
Start the engine and let it idle in place until the
temperature gauge built into the instrument cluster indicates a minimum
internal temperature of 180 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the motorcycle's
ideal operating temperature.
Take note of the engine idle speed, using the tachometer
needle, while the engine is running. Ideally, the engine should idle
steadily at 1,250 rpm.
Adjust the engine idle speed to 1,250 rpm, using the idle
adjuster screw hidden between the lower right edge of the fuel tank and
the upper edge of the right middle fairing panel. Turn the idle adjuster
screw clockwise to increase the engine idle speed, or counterclockwise
to decrease the engine idle speed, using a small flat screwdriver if
your RSV 1000R's frame (VIN number) precedes ZD4MEE009YS000292. A
plastic knob allows the engine idle speed to adjusted by hand on RSV
1000R models with a frame (VIN) numbers starting from ZD4MEE009YS000293.
Rev the engine two to three times and observe the
tachometer. The engine should return to a 1,250 rpm idle. Adjust the
engine idle speed as needed, using the method described, then rev the
engine again. Problems may exist within the throttle control,
fuel-injection system or engine, if the engine idle speed will not hold
steady at 1,250 rpm. Contact your local Aprilia service facility for
Stop the engine, once you have obtained a steady 1,250 rpm idle speed.
If it can idle then still hope to help out else need to rebuild/clean carb out (cost a lot). If can idle then get yourself 2 bottles of fuel injector cleaners, pour 30ml to 5L fuel, let engine idle for 15 minutes, give some spur high3000 - 5000 RPM revs followed by a constant 3500 RPM rev for 15 sec then repeat process again another 3 times. Ride itnormally as if you are breaking it in until next time refuelling, add another 30ml and do the same process before riding it again. Do the same thing for the next 500 km.
hi,this might help,if you have a digital volt meter,take a reading across the battery at rest(key off)should be about 12.8-13.2v.start the bike and take a reding across the battery if the bike is charging properly the meter should read between 13.8-14.2-14.4v.to check if the regulater is working correctly,connect the meter across the battery and slowly lift the rpm from idle up to about 3-3500rpm,the reading on the meter shouldnt vary much more than 1-1.5v across the rev range,if the reading fluctuates up and down with the rpm(more than about 1-1.5v)then the regulater is faulty,and obviously if the battery is showing no difference from rest to high rpm then the stator is probably at fault..hope this helps..cheers
If you have the stock computer replace the power commander with the stock computer then see if the problem still remains. If it goes you can be sure the problem lies within your commander and it will need to be remapped or replaced...Good luck
The carb has serveral jets for different Rpm ranges. If you have a problem with one range, that specific jet is probably blocked. Idle jet, low jet, intermediate jet, high jet. some bikes have more. Sounds like a jet problem to me Run Seafoam cleaner in a couple tanks.
