When you say "brake down", do you mean "break up"? As in the engine starts backfiring and missing and/or popping and will not rev past 7,000 rpm's? If this is the case, then it's likely a carburation issue. This condition is usualy called "breaking up", as the engine begins popping and loosing power. It will almost sound like it hit a rev limiter. My suggestion is first off, check the basics. Air, fuel, spark. Check for air restrictions and possible air filter obstruction or passing of forign material. Fuel system and filters/restrictions should be checked, as well as the fuel quality. And spark componants from plugs, to wires, to leads, etc. If the issue persists pnce you've got a fresh tune up on the engine, next get the carburators synchronized with a vacuum gauge set. This will ballance the carburators out, and if it's a 1999, even if it isn't the entire problem it's something that's definately long over due. A "carb ballance" is esential for any vacuum opperated carb system, as if the adjustments go out of spec on individual carbs, some may run lean while others are rich. If a cylinder runs lean then it will be the first to start "breaking up", as it doesn't have the mixture neccessary to maintain combustion and it will start by dropping that cylinder, and so-on and so-on. From there if it's still breaking up, go on with further diagnosis and testing of the rest of the fuel system. Things such as clogged main jets, clogged and or stuck carb floats/needles/seats, or even clogged air jets can cause this issue. I would "overhaul" and re-gasket the carbs at this time, as it will save hassle and money in the long run. If you're taking them apart to inspect, clean and re-seal them while you're at it. After carburation checks are complete if the issue is still present I would head to the ignition system. Check your ignition coils, check your pick up lead, etc. After that.... That engine's broke! the Stick

I have a 1994 GSXR 750 I need to know the correct rpm when idling at normal operating temperature?

correct RPM should be around 1200 to 1500 RPM with the choke on
between 750 and 900 RPM once warmed up
with a little find adjustment tuning and all pots running good you can get the idle down to 500 RPM but average is around 750 RPM

My GSXR 750 J runs extreemly rough between 7000 and 9000 rpm. Its a mildly tuned engine with after market cams, a dynojet kit and I recently installed some inline fuel filters. The bike runs perfectly...

I would check and adjust the static ignition timing as if too far retarded it will tend to misfire at mid range revs. and suffer from lack of power at the top end.

I have a GSXR 750 fuel injected model 1997 I bought for track use only. The problem is that despite fitting a pwer commander the bike will not hold a constant throttle at 7000 rpm its as if there is a rev...

hopefully you don't have a TRE (timing ****** eliminator) on it, if you do take it off, removing it ill make it easier to hold a smooth rpm especially in a turn. Also, the first generation power commander is ****. You can take it off that bike and most likely get the same results on the dyno. Those bikes self adjust whether you put a slip on or full system it and the first generation power commanders were still experimental. I've taken one off of a problematic race bike and personally had better results and faster lap times. I used to road race, now just do track days. I've always owned gixxers and still have 2.
