the 04/05 600/750's were the one with the STVA issues. They were few and far between, but there are people and companies that make the fix for it and its not that expensive.
http://www.gixxernation.com/forums/s...on-FI-code-C28

The 06/07's had an issue with the SET valve which is completely different. If you do have an issue (I did), it literally takes 30 minutes to remove it from the bike with no effects at all. If you have one and dont feel comfortable doing it, let me know and Id be happy to help.

had one go out on my 04 750...servo(butterfly) motor went out (I assume this us what you're talking about). I wired mine open and kept riding the track with no issue. AaronP had it fixed. I found this on the net later on. $100 to send it and fix? i personally have never used this site before though.

Had the same problem with mine a while back. Bought a used intake with a good servo. Also removed the secondary throttle butterflies. Had to swap out the injectors though, the used oned were bad. I have my old assembly which the secondaries are pinned open, but will give you a fi code.

If you do some searching you can find the instructions to turn the FI light off and remove the butterflies. I cannot remember exactly, but I believe you have to cut the green(?) wire... We had a 600 in the shop for the FI light. When you turned the ignition on, the secondary butterflies would cycle open three/quarters then stop and "shudder" We consulted with the owner, removed the butterflies, unplugged the servo and cut some wire in the harness. Light off, ran great. Of course he wadded the bike two months later.

This was three years ago, and I have bounced accross the tarmac a time or two since then....

Almost 40K miles on my 04 Matt Mladin 1k. Still runs like a bat out of a very hot place. 07 600 GSXR. No problems with anything. Just standard maintenance, fluids, rubber, chains and the other regular that wears out.

'04-'05 600s and 750s only. Its a fairly easy repair too if you can solder.

Suzuki doesn't sell the STVA by itself, you have to buy the entire throttle body assembly. So if you take it to a dealer...........yea, its a $1k fix. There are instructions online detailing how to repair the SVTA for the cost of solder and some small screws.
