Is it carbed or injected?
I suspect its a late bike with some sort of immobiliser issue..or perhaps the engine ecu is in limp home mode to save engine damage..
what bike exactly is it?

Over revving

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak between the throttle body and injectors, or the carb and intake. Is there any vacuum assisted actuators on the engine? That might be a place to look, where something is actuated when you put it in gear.

2000 gsxr600y Flat spots and rough running at 8 and 11 thousand rpm, won't pull passed 11000 from 4th gear up as running so rough

Full disassemble of carbs is needed. Thorough cleaning on jets and airways, vacuum and pilot screw adjustment must be done too.
Check the spark plugs for lean mixture indication and replace them if necessary.

I have a 125 pit bike and it ticks over fine but when you rev it it backfires does any body no how to fix it.

You can check ur values but some bike do make a we ticking from the values and it will back fire when revved up because of the extra fuel once revved that hasn't brine burn as it revs back down to idle speed.

When i rev my bike in nuetral its bogs out around 11 grand and then revs higher is that the power band or something else

A couple of things here, the frst is you should never rev your bike standing still in nuetral to 11K, unless of course you love to go throught the time and expense of building a new motor! Next bear in mind this motor turns up best between 6 and 10K. However what you may be finding is the bike is struggling for air. Yes air, because under normal conditions, even first gear, you are moving fast enough for the ram air to provide additional air.

Hope this helps.

GSXR 400 rev problem

The float level in your carb probably needs to be adjusted. If the gasoline level in your float bowl is borderline low, your bike may run fine when level. But on the incline, the gas level at the jet may be too low causing your engine to be starving for gas. The solution is to remove the bowl and bend the tab on the float that pushes the valve up so that the gas won't shut off until the level is higher. If you are a good mechanic, you may try this yourself. If not, take it to someone who can do this for you.

Can't get the revs below 3500rpm

Remove the negative battery connection and leave it disconnected for about 15 minutes. That should reset your engine management system. I would try a different battery if you have one handy, or maybe put yours on a battery charger. For the problem to appear suddenly after six weeks without running the bike my best guess is the battery is not functioning properly.

Good luck.
