Rev counter activates when ignition is turned on ,but wont work when engine running

This is usually caused by a broken sender wire. Check the cable for tight bends from the sender unit up to the rev counter, you will probably have to purchase a new sender unit.
Hope this helps.

I have a 1986 gs850. when opening the throttle to pull away the motor hesittates making clutch balance difficult to get away. engine feels like its going to stall carbs have been balanced, but the bikes...

Hello raising the needle would help but depending on how long the bike has been in around.
check for intake leaks at the carb joints that connect the carbs to the head.start the bike let it warm up and use WD40spray around the carb joints if the rpm's change you have a leak and recommend replacing carb joints and gaskets while your doing that clean or have the carbs cleaned or rebuilt

1987 suzuki gs850 when trying to pull away from standstill engine hesitates then revs & goes making it hard to pull away.

could be clutch slipping. also can be caused by the rubber diaphragms in the top of the carbs having pinhole leaks.

The engine revs increase when the engine gets warm.

Sounds like you are running lean. you may need to find an air leak in the intake tracked of the carb and motor. or the carb is dirty or miss adjusted pilot screw.

My rev counter does not work on my kawasaki er5 1999

The ER5 has got an electronic rev-counter, no cable.

Like the oval rear brake-drums this is another ER5 bugbear, the rec/rec fails, the battery boils and the rev-counter is usually a victim too.
Often on ER5 specific forums there will be someone who repairs the circuit board and sells the repaired units much cheaper than a new one. it's usually a tiny zener-diode that is killed.
