Re: gsxr 1000 3 years old
Try draining all the old fuel out and running fresh fuel through it.Dont try to dilute it as stale fuel turns acidic and corrodes everything it is in contact with.Fuel system may require complete clean out

Most sports bikes are limited to 300km/h by the manufacturers in an effort to be responsible.
Actually the ? was about the 1000 not "most sport bikes". The Suzuki gsxr1000 for 2007 is rev limited to 184 mph. U do the math to figure out kph but in the U.S. who cares about the metric numbers.
My 04 gsxr 1000 was parked for a year and a half when i bought it. I had a ton of rust in the fuel tank. The engine is fuel injected so it needs a free flowing fuel pump to keep a constant pressure. more than likely the strainer at the bottom of the pump housing is plugged up full of rust. You will need to remove the tank from the bike and drain all the bad fuel. Unbolt the pump housing from under the tank take care not to damage the o ring. Separate the pump from the housing by pulling apart. This may take some brute force because the rust tends to stick the pump to the housing. Once separated you will see the plastic micro strainer it will be solid brown impregnated by rust. Carefuly remove it and soak it in some fresh clean gosoline. Swish it around in a glass jar with a lid on it if possible. This worked for me. The alternative is a new strainer for about 100.00 USD. Clean the rest of the pump externally with a soft bristle brush. Drain the pump as best you can. Do not attempt to disassemble the pump as it is sealed and considered maintenance free. Ventalate the tank untill completely dry and blow it out with compressed air untill no more rust dust comes out of it. At this point you can recoat the inside of the tank if you wish, there is a product called kreme for that. Im cheap so i didn't recoat mine. Reassemble, refill with high octane fuel and dont store long term without draining the fuel tank completely and run the engine til it starves itself of fuel. With all this said YOU ARE DEALING WITH FUEL BE CAREFUL, DONT BLOW YOURSELF UP!!!
