Hi
I am hoping there is a mythical wizard out there or at least a savvy rider that can help with my 2007 CBR600RR. I will put my best effort into describing the current situation in hopes of recieving some guidance.

The bike has 7200 miles on it
Issue first noticed cruising at 50 mph where the bike started lurching on me. The lurching would get worse even as i slowed to a lower cruising speed. This problem has been ongoing for about 2 weeks. During this ride i had to pull over and turn the bike off and let it sit for about 5 minutes and then countinued on. The first 5-10 mins of the ride i had no problems but once again it started lurching until i was forced to stop again.
More recently when i experience this (typically first indication is cruising around 7k and then trying to accelerate or cruising around 7k and the bike starts lurching) i engage the clutch and attempt to rev the engine. The result is a varied response all of which sound terrible. Most often the bike will max out at 9000 rpms (cant sustain it) and i will rev again at sometimes it will act like nothing is wrong the secong go-around or it will stall. I have not noticed this problem ever in the first 10 minutes of riding if the bike has sat over night or for a few hours. I have checked my fluid levels and have ran 2 tanks of the appropriate amount of sea foam through it and additionally have run 2 tanks of the appropriate amount of gum out fuel injector carb cleaner. Both of these have not seemed to help.

If anyone has some insight or has experience something similar please let me know as this issue seems solvable but currently has taken all the fun out of riding.

Semper Fidelis,
Kyle

So I've been scouring and so far my conclusions are it could be the fuel pump / fuel filter or possibly rust in the tank. If anyone has had these symptoms and could shed some light it would be greatly appreciated

Thanks for letting us know. Are you the original owner? If you are, to help prevent rust, always fill up the tank if you're storing it for long periods of time (e.g. winter).
