Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
7. Intake air leak.
8. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.

I have a 98 venture, when out of gear I rev the engine and at 3000rpm the engine start cutting out, power then no power,in 1/2 second intervals. It loses more power as you try to accelerate.


Don't have a lot of experience with this model , but , sounds like rev limiter is engaging because computer believes vehicle not moving maybe ?
Is speedo working if electric ? if speedo geared then is speed sensor bad , I have seen that before .

Engine cuts out when hitting 6500 rpm?


I would expect for that to be the rev limiter. This is a protection against the engine coming apart when REXING the engine too high without a load. I hope this video helps.

Troubleshooting moto guzzi stone


Just a thought as you asked...sounds like a poor throttle position potentiometer ... throttle cabled to butterfly most likely and if ECU dosen't know throttle plate moved you will see this symptom . If electric throttle , can you see(hear) plate moving whilst twisting , if so measure resistance/voltage on pot. . I do not know if resistance of position sensor can be measured while twisting throttle or pushing plate (bike off , battery disconnected or ignition off)

Engine cuts out and sputters at 4000 rpm. sometimes hard starting. Quad 4


cutting out and sputtering at 4000 rpms are normal, its the rev limiter kicking in, all of them do it, as far as hard starting, is it just sense its been cold?? might want to put some fuel stabilizer in it.

CHECK THE FUEL FILTER FIRST.IF THE FILTER IS PLUGGED U CAN HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.IF THAT DOES NOT FIX IT U NEED TO CHECK THE FUEL PRESSURE.THERE IS A FUEL PRESSURE TEST PORT ON THE FUEL INJECTION RAIL(TOP OF THE ENGINE)THE PRESSURE SHOULD BE 40-47PSI.KEY ON ENGINE OFF.

98 gsxr cuts out around eight g when accelerating but fine in N


Sounds like you're running out of fuel. It doesn't take much power (ie, fuel) to rev it in neutral, which might explain why it does that fine but falls over under load. Checked your fuel pressure/pump/filter?
