I have a 01 gix 6 and for some reason it's starting to bog in lower rpms. If Iím sitting in neutral and just blip the throttle I get very little response unless I hold it open for a few seconds. When I start out and try to start with any speed it takes forever to climb through the rpms up to about 6000 then it picks up and screams. It runs fine otherwise. Itís stock with a Mig slip on. I changed the plugs about 6 months ago (before the winter and didn't ride much in the winter). The bike has been doing this since I started riding this season.

Check air filter and ram air intake to make sure its clean. Also check all your vacuum lines and make sure that none are clogged or kinked. I'm guessing that you like to do wheelies and stoppies from your avatar; for some reason oil finds its way where its not suppost to be when doing stunts. If not backfiring or blowing smoke, I doubt its plugs or anything ignition related or fuel delivery related. Just a suggestion.

Suzukis also have the TPS that can really fuck things up down low if it's out of whack. Make sure that's adjusted right before you start looking for the mice.

When you put it away for the winter, did you fill up the gas tank and put stay fuel in the tank? If you didn't this will mess up up performance of your bike.

Doesn't the 2001 GSXR600 have carbs? I bet the jets are fouled with varnish from winter storage without a gas stabilizer additive. The gas can also be stale (the more volatile compounds evaporate over time), adding to the problem.

Drain the tank.
Drain the carb float bowls.
Add fresh 93 octane fuel.

If it's fuel injected, skip the 'drain carb float bowls' part.

The 01 gix is fule injected. I checked the filter and vac lines and everything seems fine. It almost feels like the timing is retared but i don't know how that could have happened. The bike never sat for more than 3 weeks with out being rode this past winter and i made sure to top it off after every ride. I thought about fuel too, think running some fuel inj cleaner through it would help? it's just wierd cause it feels great after about 6000-7000 rpms and as long as i stay up in the power band it screams it's just those low rpms that feel and sound like shit.
