ok so the bike starts/idles fine like 1st 2nd kick whatever but wont rev out.
it has no power and wont rev past 5500rpm about 1/3 throttle and it gets pretty hot and starts blowing a tiny bit off smoke when i shut it off but the weird thing is it kinda come an goes, i went for a short ride the other day and it was running shitty so i turn it off look at it start it back up go down the road a bit still running shitty staying at constant throttle then bam! random little wheelie out of nowhere, powers back, running sweet so i take it home, a couple days later i start her up and same problem again  :banghead:  
ideas anyone????

also i have a bunch of old whinging neighbours that complain literally every time i start my bike could some old sook be putting water or something in my tank??

i drained the tank about 3 weeks ago put fresh gas in it and it ran fine. does water sink or float on gas? and yea i totally think they would do sometthing like that hahah  :lame:

Water in the tank could lead to that. Water ends up at the bottom of the tank. 

 

What year is the bike? What mods? On my '03, the electrical system was set up so the lights run on the DC side without any additional charging capacity, which lead to it not wanting to rev out with lights on.

Water in the fuel wouldn't be a big surprise. At a minimum I'd drain the float bowl and a little out of the bottom of the tank.

i know exactly what the problem is, your neighbour is a clown & that's why it's running funny.
