It could be but will it go past 4000 rpm in the other gears? next time you riding it and have this problem, try pulling the chock out just a little and see if it helps or hurts. if it helps it is to lean if it hurts it is to rich. hope this helps you get to the problem. Brian

03 mitsubishi endeavor engine cuts out at 4000 rpm when driving revs fine when in neutral. It has no engine codes. any ideals?


At 4000 rpm what does your speedo say. Your computer may be limiting both your mph and your rpms. I have a 2004 Ford Ranger at 90 mph the engine sputters and seems to miss. It will stay at 90. In neutral it revs fine. My problem is because of chip programming in the computer. Your problem may be the same.

2009 Hyundai accent in 5th gear the RPM is 4000 is this normal? My speed is 115 Klm an hour


No, it is not. You should be around 2500 rpm at 115 Kilometers an hour. Even if you were in 4th it should only be around 3000 rpm. At 115 MPH you would be near the 4000 RPM. Your either running on 3 cylinders or your transmission is in trouble and needs repair.

I have recently put a jet kit in my 1999 kawasaki zx6E! It seems that when i get it at a really high RPM in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th gear, it spits and sputters like its starving for fuel. I was wondering if...


Your not reaching the RPM level for your rev limiter are you? The rev limiter will automatically shut fire off intermittently to keep the motor from damage at high RPM's. I have to admitt I am not up to par an all these newer bikes, but if you jetted the carbs, then I doubt you have a fuel pump on the bike. Most bikes with fuel pumps use fuel injection! Call the dealer who sold you the jets and ask them what else needs to be done, I am sure they will be glad to help.

The bike wont go over 160kph and thats in forth gear. when i change to 5th the bike goes down to 140kph and when i change to 6th it goes to 120kph. what could be the problem


Since 160 kph is approximately 100 mph, you have exceeded the design parameters.
What is the engine rpm at that speed?
It is probably in excess of 14k rpm, which is beyond its tolerances.
However, if not intentional, the most likely cause of limited rpm range would be a clogged fuel filter or too low of an octane rating in the gas.

When I am up to 65mph on freeway.the gear wont shift if I keep going up to 80 on the automatic 4 bang tran.IT goes upto 4000 rpm,I dont know if I should keep accelerating because it seems like it should...


well, unfortunately you have found the limits of your pickup, my friend. I believe the only automatic transmissioin that was available on your vehicle was a 4 speed. Now, at 65 mph it should be cruising around 1800-2000rpm or so.
you have got a pickup, not a ferrari unfortunately, and to save on cost and to ensure strength of the gearbox chev decided NOT to put an overdrive in this transmission (this would mean a 5th gear). This saves you money and ensures when you are carrying that extra load in the back, then you are not stressing the internals of the gearbox.

I hope this puts your mind at ease.

When im driving in 5th gear the RPM's seem high around 3500 is this normal?


I, also, thought this was high at first. After some research, I found that this car runs in that range at about 75 mph. So, yes. That is normal.

Misfiring 2007 Honda VFR 800


I would say that your bike may be running a little lean. I usually replace the jets on all my bikes as soon as I get them as the emissions requirements mandate that the manufacturers pass stringent emissions tests prior to the dealer selling them. Some bikes wont even idle or run, especially off road bikes from places like California. and in these cases you must re jet it is a must! I even throw away or drill larger holes into my air cleaner cover.

Good Luck!

Top speed


a crash. The reason I ask is with all my mods my bike doesn't stop pulling. If I crack the throttle at 70mph it just climbs. 8090,100,110 with no sign of slowing or mellowing out. But once I hit 110, I get scared of the rev limiter and back off. I mean, if 120 was the true ungoverned top speed, I'm sure the power would mellow off at around 110mph and just slowly inch it's way to 120, right? Anyone with more guts that can shed some light on this subject?? Remember, it's a 750, so your 900cc opinion should differ greatly,i have an 800 so probably just a little difference from your 750. not much though i wouldnt think. first the rev limiter is not so bad. i have not hit it in 6th gear, but have hit it in just about every other gear including 5th. just try it out in a lower gear to see for yourself. it will just kind of cut out. nothing violent. definately makes you wanna ease up or shift up though. mine also pulls very strong up to about 120 mph. 120-130 takes some time. and 130-140 takes quite some time. i have only seen low 140's (speedo indicated. reality is probably about 130 mph as everyone says there is about a 10 % error on the optimistic side) i have run out of road before hitting the rev limiter in 6th everytime. just takes so long to get there. but i would think up to about mid to upper 140'S (again indicated) would be about it. doubt 150 mph could be hit just based on rpms at 140 ish (8000 ish) and how slowly it gains speed on the top end.,,,
