2002 cavalier 2.2 cuts out at 4000 rpm

The 2.2 or the 2.4 neither one has RPM limiter. On these vehicle when the timing chain goes,you end up taking out a valve. If your timing chain is out of timing it will do exactly what you describe, now the pecking noise if that is a valve it will do exactly also

Wont start - appears to have no spark

Have you checked the "clutch safety switch"? It should be at the base of the clutch pedal, or mounted on the trans by the slave cyl. (If it's a hydraulic clutch)

My r1150rt, 2004 with 7000 miles on the clock and just serviced seems to lack power momenterally when accelerated between 3000 & 4000 rpm. It is as if there were a lack of either spark of fuel for a second...

This sounds like the hall effect sensors to me, this is what happend to me I changed plugs, leads and the coils, in the end it was the sensors, if you need to know where to get the sensors from let me know. This is a comon fault with this bike
