Unhappy 2005 GSXR 600 having issues...

Hey ya'll,

I recently got a 05 GSXR 600 from a dealership called Team Extreme. Despite all the many issues whats goin on now is... Its throwing a code and at higher speeds it starts missing and has only gotten worse. Its running rich and has a little gas comin out of the exhaust. I changed the spark plugs and after two rides it needs new plugs again. I have a feeling that its the throttle position censor but I'm not real sure as I'm far from a mechanic but I try to do what I can on my own. Any help / advice?
Few things about my bike
- we did the best we could to clean out gas tank which was full of rust .
- boyfriend had lost the key and so took out tumblers so we could start it, the ignition isn't bolted in good I had ordered a new one twice but yes they were the cheap ones and didn't work, I am waiting on one that is supposed to be OEM to be in soon (could that have something to do with the issues and do I have to do anything special besides just plugging it in?)
anyways guys helllppppp plssss!!!!!

I tried to do the paper clip to read the code but I couldn't, I know the smart thing to do is take it to a shop and put it on a computer I guess but was trying to avoid that, dealership took it and charged me 120 for a diagnostic fee that they weren't even correct about. I knew it needed new plugs but I also knew It threw the code and something else was wrong too.

Thanks! Will see if that helps, I really feel it may be the throttle position censor. But not certain.

Call Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited. He's a well respected forum sponsor. If nothing else he can steer you in the right direction.
I take my bikes to him all the way from Pearland, 45 minutes each way because I like how things go there.

Agree with Bumblebee - take it to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited. Quit the guessing, just do it drop it off.

yep, if I do not do it myself, Patrick does it.
I may be taking a few of my bikes to him soon so he can go through them and get them ready to sell. Patrick will treat you right, and not do anything that does not really need to be done. His folks earn their money.

I would really like some feedback on the ignition question and also if it sounds like the TPS because if possible id like to just do it myself. I know its better to take it to a shop and I will if I have to I'm just tryin to save the money and trips right now if I can. I just thought possibly there may be a bike mechanic on here that can give me a little help/advice. I def appreciate the recommendations though as I def may need to take it

04/05 GSXR 6/750's have a secondary throttle butterfly operated by a stepper motor on the side of the throttle body. It stays closed at lower RPM's to help low rev power, and opens at high revs to allow full air flow.

Racer fix: safety wire the butterfly in the wide open position. It might make 5% less down low power, but above 4k rpms it will have no effect. It will have no ill effects on the engine short or long term. And it is free to do at home. Just need a 6 inch piece of safety wire and some pliers.

If you need specific instructions I can refer you to Honeybadger, aka Mikey, who did this on our 05 750 racebike.

Call Patrick. You don't necessarily have to go there.
He's one of us, he'll talk to you and help you figure out what you need to do.

Ok so I got home yesterday and went to work on it, I figured out the paperclip test thing and It was the c28 code but before I even did that I checked to see when you start it if the valves opened up and they didn't so I already knew but just figured id test for codes anyway, I wired the valves up and now it runs and revs up like it should so it seems, I dint get the chance to ride it last night but when I get home today I'm gonna ride it and see how it does. I also had spoken to one of my good friends that just opened a new shop in lake Jackson Dun Wright Cycles where bikers bay used to be and he gave me a little advice and told me I could bring it up there today. anyhow I just wanted to give a big thanks for the help from everyone I really appreciate it!!! If anyone knows someone that has a sensor for sale and not the whole throttle body unless it decent price, give me a holler please, id rather not have it throwing the code if does good and I can ride it

Does it have a power commander and what are the mods done to the bike? If it has a power commander and you only have a slip on,try taking the commander off. I take them off all the time.They do go bad and will cause fuel and ignition issues.

Sell it and buy a Honda. That should fix all your Suzuki problems.
