So I had been having the same problems as a few others, my bike wouldn't rev over 10 or 11k rpms. today I took the gas tank off and noticed the fuel line had gotten kinked when I last put the tank back on, the banjo connecting the line to the tank was put on so the line was twisted, I took it off and flipped it to how it should go and carefully slid the tank back in place so it didn't get kinked this time. and PRESTO, took the bike out for a spin and it pulled right up too 15k.

On a side note, its been so long since my bike was running properly between the dead battery and the fueling issue I forgot how much power it really had.

moral of the story, check your fuel lines. this is especially the case if the problem only started after you had been working on your bike, or had work done to it.

if you are having problems with bike not revving up to redline here are the possible problems it could be.

1. twisted/kinked/pinched fuel line.
2. Bad battery or bad stator.
3. bad fuel pump.

if you can think of other causes post them up.

just one question... how would a bad battery keep your bike from redlining?
The bike runs off the battery which is charged by the stator, (unlike a car, the bike won't run without the battery) if the battery is bad, it won't take in enough charge to put enough juice back out to run the fuel pump and spark.

It has never happened to my bike, but I heard the symptoms are rather similar, that was the first thing my mechanic thought of when i told him it would not reach red line, especially since i was already having issues with my battery.

I don't think a car will run w/o a battery either. I have no experience with a bike not redlining either from a fuel pump or a battery. I didn't think a battery could be an issue if not redlining if the stator is good. Bad battery but the bikes running I assume that it would rev up since the more R's... the more juice the stator produces. I guess when my battery craps out... I'll jump start it then see if it will rev to the red. Then I guess we'll know fore sure.

I didn't ask you that to start a debate or anything... but if I have problems... the more I know the better. Thanks for the info.
