    Acting like it's on the limiter

    My 2009 FZS has an R&D R3 flash. 8850 limiter. A lot of the time the ski won't go over 8000 rpm. It tries but it feels like it's hitting the limiter but for sure it's not. I've changed the clutch a couple times so that's not it. Could it be bad plugs? Oil level too high? I'm stumped.

    What mods on it ? You got a tach on it for accurate rpm

    Not exactly sure. It's an impeller I used in my GPRSHO that spun to 8800 rpm.

    The only way to tell is to got wot then back off slowly and if it picks up rpm say 3/4 throttle then your on the limiter. When you ran 8800 rpm with your gprsho was is the same weather?

    It's not even close to the limiter. It hesitates at 8000 and then will get up to 8350 - 8400. Sometimes it just keeps hesitating and won't go past 8000.
