Mileage?

Check valve clearances, check fuel filters, air filter

Re: Bike won't rev past 9k

Without an FI error being indicated, it's probably a fuel delivery problem. Do the fuel pump tests as described in the manual.

Re: Bike won't rev past 9k

What does it do when you get to 9k? Does it shut on/off, stutter, just smoothly lose power?

Does it lose power on the way to 9k or pull strong right up to 9k?

Re: Bike won't rev past 9k

mileage is 23180 km. it kind of loose power on the way to 9k and when it reaches 9k it just stays there. it doesn't cut off or anything and if i pop the clutch it doesn't take off as hard as it should.

Fuel starvation. Almost positive. Now you just need to figure out why. Too little pressure, intake restriction (filter), or otherwise.

Re: Bike won't rev past 9k

Take the bike out for a ride, get back home, and then open the fuel cap (put your ear next to it when you open it) listen for a "whoosh" of air.

And if you have air "whooshing" then you need to open / clear the vent so you aren't creating a vacuum in the tank.

Re: Bike won't rev past 9k

Is there a powercommander or similar on the bike?

Top injectors don't kick in until the higher RPMs

Check your oil. If it is massively overfilled it would do that. Easy and with a try.
