05 gsxr 600 issue :(

So I finally got some free time and dry weather. Start my bike and fi code :(. So I ride down the block to gas up. And get back on the road and full throttle, good power untill around 9k rpm then it was like it hit a wall, no power. Well I ride home ok, turn bike off then the iginition back on and the code is gone now and the bike ran normal. So my question is does it sound like the STVA is going out? Or maybe some other gremlins. Keep in mind my poor bike sits outside and we have had incredibly heavy rain lately. Hopefully maybe it was just stuck. :(((

I had a problem like that last year, turned out to be the servo motor on the throttle bodies. I lost all power after 7000rpm, and it threw a fi code. Not sure if that is what is happening to your bike though.

The '04-'05 GSXR 600/750 are notorious for the STVA going bad.
Without testing it or pulling the code I can't say for certain, but your symptoms are descriptive of it going out.

I've heard they really serve no purpose any negatives to removing the stv?

Removing it will keep the FI light on all the time. If you have another fault, you'll never know. Also, low rpm power will be slightly reduced.

If you can solder, they're relatively easy to disassemble and repair. Search any gsxr forum for instructions.

04-05 gsxr 600s and 750s have two sets of throttle bodies. One controlled by your wrist, the other by the computer. The motor that actuates this second set has connections on the board, they break, and then the throttle bodies don't open neutering power. The motor is located on the right side of the bike partially tucked behind the frame spar.

If it was bad.....you'd know. You'd have no power or acceleration at all past 7000ish rpm.

You can't buy a new one. Suzuki only sells the whole throttle body assembly, and they want stupid-money for it. Most people remove it (I don't recommend) or fix the bad solder joints.

Yea it felt like I hit a wall at 9k or when ever I opened the throttle... Le sigh... Gonna lift the tank this afternoon and start repair... Can't have my baby sick like this. Love my gsxr!!! She vibrates me in all the right ways.
