Sounds like a bad coil, you should be able to have it checked at a bike shop.

SOURCE: Cannot start not using the choke and rpm flattens at 4000 rpm

The air screw and the idle screw turn inward until they LIGHTLY seat, then back out one and one half turns. For the dead spot, pull the slide out of the carb and move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. Two notches if needed.

The pilot jet covers the idle function. It sounds like this is not the problem though. The high idle indicates a lean fuel mix. An air leak is leaning the mix. It could be bad intake manifold gaskets, carb and manifold not down tight, loose spark plug, cylinder head not tight, bad head gasket.

If you do want to adjust the pilot jet the, often it is adjustable from the outside of the carb. It is normally located just out side and next to the main jet. It will be brass and have a slot for a small screw driver. If no outside screw, then an inside adjustment screw means removing the float bowl. Turn the jet screw outward 1/4 to 1/2 turn.

SOURCE: Bogging engine 3400-4000 RPM under full throttle.

Sounds like one of the intermittant jets is clogged. Need to clean the carbs.

SOURCE: bike loses power in the mid rpm range

Try the air filter first (make sure it's clean). The needle valve on your carb slider could be bent, or not seated correctly or just set wrong. If you have a power exhaust valve, it could be set wrong or malfunctioning as well. Good luck.

Sounds like a fueling problem either water in the carbs or the fuel flow from the tap is insufficient. If there is a vacuum pipe it may have been dislodged or holed.

More likely to be your ignition coils. They heat up and expand this can cause an open circuit which will close up again when it has cooled down. Although, a bad charging system may cause this problem. Check the battery voltage with engine switched off ( approx 12 volts) and with the engine running (approx 14 volts) If you are getting 14 volts then your battery is dead, if you aren't, then your charging system has a fault.

My 2008 gsx-r 600 loses power at crusing speeds in any gear?

You may have to define this a tad more. What do you mean loses power? Does the electrical flicker and the bike dies? What exactly is cruising speeds? If its in any gear, the RPM's will be different for each gear. Does it give good acceleration until say 8,000 rpm and then dies. Any wierd sounds associated with it? Did you happen to use corn-oil gas and your lines are dried out? Give all the information you can please so we can help you out the best way possible.

Sounds like your catalytic converters may be plugged up. You can do a quick check by loosening the exhaust pipes from the manifolds and see how it performs.

you say theres petrol running from the hose from the airbox? if so that aint right and sounds like your carburettor floats are sticking open which would flood the bike and make it run rough and to rich sometimes bashing the float bowl on the bottom of the carb whilst still on the bike can free a sticky float use a bit of 2x2 or 2x4 and jab it dont use a sledge hammer or something lol if that dont work strip down the float chamber and clean and try again all the best

Carburator problem

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand would suggest a rebuilt/clean of the carbs. A temporary workaround would be to switch off the fuel petcock, remove the fuel hose, partially drain the carbs and spray into the fuel hose (going into the carbs) injector/carb cleaner. Reinstall fuel hose, turn on fuel. Remove the air filter and start the bike. After warmup, rev while spraying injector/carb cleaner into the opening where the air filter should be. Get a hard paper/board (such as a folder) cut to a size bigger than the air filter but would fit inside the opening of the airbox. Rev/pump the bike slowly building the RPM at about 4~5K suddenly cover the opening (with the board) to fully choke the carbs while maintaining throttle. Before the engine dies, remove the cover. Spray again while revving. Repeat choking/spraying several times. The idea is for the vaccum to draw the clog/blockages.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Truck losing power and service engine soon light on

Like to other guy said, give it a tuneup. Also try SEAFOAM to clean carb up of slug. Also check to make sure the butter fly for the choke has not come loose, causing it the choke it down. Failed choke pull-off.

Bike trouble

Yes! You will open those things up, and they will probably look pretty clean, but the problem with your carbs is in the Idle circuit - too small for you to see into. If you do a search of carb cleaning or related topics, you'll see that alot of folks with cab problems try to clean their carbs ... only to have to open them up again due to improper cleaning (They are difficult to clean properly, require alot of patience) So, I would suggest that you have them cleaned professionally, or at least buy good carb dip to get them really clean. Spray cans of carb cleaner are worthless. Might as well wash em with dish soap.
