How to adjust Suzuki Rev Limiter Down?

1999 Suzuki 1000 Motorcycle. How to adjust Rev Limiter Down? I want it to be 3000 max for 6th gear, and less than or equal to 3000 for all other gears. (I guess what I really want it to limit the drive sprocket RPM to 3000 max for all gears, and be able to do 3000rpm in 6th.)

1989 Suzuki GSX 750 F that won't idle below 3000 rpm

Hi, Suzuki #5 is jumping up and down waving the Suzuki flag screaming "pick me pick me" and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak, check intake boots with propane
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector.
10. Multiple carburetors not in sync.

2002 Chrysler Sebring 2.7 liter... When the car starts, I can only bring the RPM's up to 3000. when I've reached 3000 rpms the RPM's start going up and down...I have replaced the fuel pump what should I...

Nothing, you have hit the rev limiter. The up and down is the computer controlling the rpm. If you drive it, it should rev past 3,000. The computer is designed to keep free wheeling rpm to that level. It will only allow a higher rpm if vehicle is in gear and moving with a load.

Runs and starts fine but will not rev over 9,000 rpms, in neutrol or going down the road, runs great, starts great, revs good till 9,000. wont go over lke it cuts out. idles good. what is it, 98 gsxr 750...

First impression was why would anyone rev their motorcycle to 9 grand in neutral? I could see if you were in gear clutch pulled and ready for a "drag" or Race Start but in neutral?

Anyway I can't hear it so if the sound is like it hits 9k and starts popping then two things either an over rev limiter which I doubtr because the engine red lines at 13,500 OR you have a set of spark plugs breaking down under load

Momentary throttle loss

It is the rev limiter kicking in. It is designed to shut the spark off to the engine when it reaches a certain rpm. This is to prevent the bike from over revving and blowing your engine up. You can disable them, but I do not reccomend it. You can look on or search google on how to do this. Good luck.

Driving problem

Hummmm...Gixer sixer at 5k in the 5 hole...about $1.35 on the meter? I'd be suspicious that the rev limiter did kick on - sure sounds like it. What's your red line, anyway? Usually you can go a tad past red line before it'll kick on. Check any fuel filter that you have and look for a bent or kinked fuel line. You might have been sucking more gas than it could feed. Look for a vent in you gas cap - make sure that it's open, too. I've heard of guys gas tanks actually sucking down.
