I picked up an 01 GSX-R 1000 about two years ago from a friend. I have ridden all over on her and not had a problem. A few weeks ago she started shutting down around 5000 rpms in sixth gear. The tachometer falls to 0 like you just hit the kill switch at idle. After a few seconds the engine will start back up with no issues. If it messes up in sixth it will mess up in fifth, fourth and third gears. But not second or first. It will also shut down when decreasing rpms at about 5600. I tried switching the cam position sensor, but did not inspect the cam at the time, I will be doing that tomorrow. I will keep everyone informed if I figure something out. C

What did you find out? My 01 is doing the same at 5000 rpm. Tach goes to zero, engine bogs down, but keeps running. Then revs back up. Does not do it accelerating or decelerating, only when cruising in 3,4,5 & 6.
