Well my suzuki across has always run fairly average. Wont move till it hit around 7 grand which i think is normal for this bike. But lately it will rev to 9 grand then just dies in the arse and sort of splutters. It wont go over 9 grand and at that point it loses power, I have to change gear to go any faster which can be a real pain when it comes to hills. I have no idea about engines and dont really wont to go to my local mechanic just yet as every time I go I get reamed and seem to end up with a new problem. This thing red lines at around 16 grand!!! Whats going on. Could it just need tuning? Does it sound like plugs? Could it be the throttle slides? It would be great to hear some input as this thing is pretty much non rideable how it is. Its my daily commute and for the last week it has just gotten worse and worse. Cheers guys.
