Unhappy Gsx750et Help !"

I have recently stripped down the carbs of my Gsx750et for a clean, When i put them back on the bike fires up and ticks over nice but when given throttle to pull away it dies/fades out.

In a last resort i got another secondhand set and fitted them to find it did THE SAME ??? so its NOT the carbs ?

I am confused as to if its the petrol tap, tho this has been cleaned, but im thinking i have put the Cylinder head intake pipes on wrong as its CLEARLY a fuel flow problem.
i have fitted them L L and R R <<< In that order on the rubber markings.
Is that right ??? and any ideas what the problem might be ?
The sun is shineing and i cant use my bike... HEEEEEEEEELLLLP !"

Open the tank after it quits and listen. A very simply answer could be that your tank isn't venting. Usually it will run for a while but look at simple/free fixes first.

I know nothing about GSX R's.

I'm suprised no one has yet recommended the ole salt water fix yet.

Where's MOKE?

Happy thought for today. I'm not Nicky Hayden. Owwwww. Rock on Mika!

Is the original air box and filter installed? What you are describing is a problem I had with an old gs650. I installed pod filters on it and it was way too lean. Would only rev to about 4500 then fall flat on it's face. You're right it is a fuel delivery problem but it may be caused from too much air. How I found it was to remove the pods and I put a folded towell over all 4 carbs and it ran great! Took the throttle and went all the way to the redline. When I replaced the pods I just cut up the towell and put it over the carbs then forced the pods back on to hold the towel. This is not a fix just a work around. If you find that it works restricting some air like I did, then the real fix is to rejet it a couple of numbers bigger.
