I had bought a junk Gixxer 750 a year or so ago that had similar problems and I spent way too much money trying to solve the issues ... came across many things that contributed to the problem but never fully got rid of it.. some of the things were: tilt switch shorting out, rectifier not working properly, wire harness had bad spots in it where it was shorting out, tank ended up not being right for the bike (carb style instead of fuel inj. style) there is no return fuel line on a carb tank so they used the over flow tubing and cut it in half to "N-g-r" rig it and when they did they pinched the tubing and it was barely able to dribble the return flow of gas back into the tank, the throttle cable wire was loose inside the housing on the grib causing alot of play, something about the butterfly flaps was wrong, there was so much rust in the tank that the last though was that the rust got into the injectors and was cloggin the flow... at that point I called it quits and worked out a deal for the seller to buy the bike back for purchase price plus parts because he has advertised it as "runs perfect, no mechanical problems" there were other issues with the bike as well but those didn't have anything to do with the irregularity in the gas and throttle dealings...
If it's too good to be true... then you must be Dreaming.
