Sounds like you described exactly what my bike started doing two days ago. I haven't really had a chance to check it out. But just before I noticed it, I had filled up on gas at an unfamiliar station. I'm gonna run this tank dry today, and go from there. I've got about 6,500 miles on mine, so I think I'm due to change the plugs, and clean my air filter. I'll let you know what happens, and vice vesa.

I'm a recovering work-aholic, and I haven't done a damn thing for 6 months.

no it doesn't rev up, it does the opposite.. it stops and makes no power.. its like your hittin the rev limiter at 12,000 rpm.. and it only does it when i twist the throttle hard.. if i just gradually take it to redline it does it.. but when i get on it hard it stops.. its fucked up.. i dont know whats wrong with it

when was the last time you got gas. It could be a tank of bad gas. Check your fuel filter and see if its dorty ans also if you know how to take the carbs off check your jets to see if there dirty.
