I just bought a 2008 Gsxr 600 and when I test drove it, it ran like a champ. But after I got it home and did some cruising around the city I slowly started to realize that between 4-6k rpms constant speed (no matter what gear -but mainly 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th) that my rpms would do it to 0 and come back up shortly to whatever my throttle position was at. This sometimes made the bike jerk forward. I did a little digging and seen problems with kickstands, TPS, fuel pumps, rectifiers, etc. but let me show exactly what mines is doing HERE’S A VIDEO OF IT: Loss of power.mp4
With that being said... my bike has two recalls that need to be done. One is the rectifier and front brake master cylinder. I just dropped it off to get this done to it but I have a feeling this won’t fix my problem. Just explaining things to the techs, and also bringing up the fact that I’ve seen in previous forums that O2 sensors may be bad in them, they really couldn’t explain things either. Has anyone ever figured out a solution to this problem?? Or does everything sell them and the next person (ME) gets the problem??? Any solutions out there? Please anything would help...

Hi. Nice video. Zoom-in of dash shows "CHEC" comes up when bike stalls. Could be for a number of reasons, but start with the easiest.
Check the side stand. Sometimes the side-stand doesn't go all the way up or is loose, due to weak spring or lack of lubrication etc...
Check that the side stand goes all the way up.
Make sure the little "tab" on the side-stand is pushing the "side-stand switch plunger" all the way closed.

That's a good point. I'll start with this.

Good question. Just bought the bike but it starts up without any hesitation or sounding weak
check the connections, the needle flopping does happen when a battery is going or charging system failure, maybe you have a loose connection, ground?

gonna have to go through it

As soon as I get the bike back from dealer, I’m testing this. I have to admit, I haven’t even taken the seat off to see what it looks like.

Battery is good and had a new rectifier installed (recall). I have a side-stand switch, kick stand springs, and a TPS on order. I will update when i get parts in and installed.
